Yeah Amorette,I remember that Monday with an unbelievable sadness and heavyness. It's the day that my world was devastated and ended by someone who has not had the decency, in one year, to pick up a phone, call and say, "I'm so sorry for what happened to you." We all know where the fire started and how it started. The Billings news came on at noon today and the fire was the top of the news. It stated that a "... spark in the basement ..." was the original cause. To see pictures of everything burning made thoses tears come gushing again. I am glad someone -- Main Street Grind -- has been able to make something good come out of such a horrible tragedy. Apparently the guys, where the fire started, have walked away with a huge insurance check, and one year later, I am still sitting here and haven't seen a dime from anyone. I know life's not fair, but it seems like the same people keep getting away with everything and they see no penalty or responsibility for ANYTHING they have done. It doesn't really matter if it was an accident or not -- accidents cost, most of the time, to someone, and all they've seen is a big paycheck. This was NOT my fault and, in fact, I was located on the other end of the block, but it still got me, and I'm the one paying for it! The fire dept. told me that they ended up putting over 2 MILLION GALLONS of water on just my building!!! I thought insurance (theirs) was to cover losses that others recieved as a result of actions on the part of the insured?
This last year has been a really tough one for me to get thru. All of us are trying to do what we can to see justice done in any of this, but again, it costs money, and mine was all burnt up a year ago. I lost absolutely everything. I don't think most people in town have understood this fact.
Yeah, you guys, why don't you pick up the phone and wish me well, OR better yet, see if there is anything I might need, to get myself back up in business, or just get thru the wreck this negligance has caused in my life? The whole thing will haunt me for the rest of my life, and the fact that no one, as of yet, has been made to be responsible, is a dirty, rotten shame.
John Laney, on the Billings news today, said that our town has bounced back and won't let this get them down. Well John, come sit down and talk with me. Let's talk about "bouncing back". Does it sound like I might be bitter? MAAAAAAAAYBEEEEEEEE!!!!!
