I agree with that. If they could get a court order for her removal why couldn't they get a court order for her things to be moved to storage or something like that. Instead they claim they did everything to help this woman who is terminally ill and elderly. They should be ashamed. Someone should do something or organize something for this poor woman who has no-one it seems. I think tax payers should be able to have a say in this I mean tax payers are paying for the housing and Welfare programs. I am glad i no longer live in Ma. What a joke the welfare system has become. they will let people capable of working live off tax payers without any end to it, but toss and elderly woman who is terminally ill into the streets!! What is the state coming too!!!

Maybe you should have spent more time with a dictionary and less time misunderstanding your Bible. I mean, come on, "haddicaped!?" or "wheather?"
For the love of God, if you're (not your!) going to insult an entire region, at least try to do it in English. I assume it's your mother tongue. I'm very sorry for the old woman's plight and have every confidence that the Board will reconsider, but I must say I'm glad you don't live here anymore. The regional IQ must've jumped several points when you left.
