I'm a total and complete believer in, paying it forward ever seeing the movie; Pay it Forward a number of years ago. I've always done so anonymously as I've never wanted to be in the "spot light", etc. I started doing this even prior to the movie while my younger brother, his wife, and newborn son were living in a terrible part of South Bend Indiana. I've made it sure that he would NEVER find out who was sending the money orders as it could have been any of about ten people with me being the least likely suspect, that's my reason for using money orders etc. I was doing this shortly after not only breaking my neck about four year earlier but I was going through what I'd call post traumatic disorder as my wife at the time and myself lost our only child, Eric Matthew Walz just about 30 minutes after being brought into this world. It took me over five years to "deal with" it, but I think of him in my prayers each day.

Now I'm trying to deal with my wheelchair accessible van that didn't get finished with the engine, transaxle replacement leaving me out to dry as they went out of business prior to finishing the Windstar of mine which had ALWAY's been my little hotrod even though it's a wheelchair conversion van, it sets really good, and I have a very nice we'll/tire combination which helps out significantly! Now that they've gone out of business, I cannot take them to court as I don't know what their last name is, and also I'm sure they would make it looked like I was the bad guy even though I paid them for 12 additional hours of labor, which amounted to over $700 and I supplied all the parts. Like the saying goes, sometimes you're the bug, and other times you're the windshield! I just lost out as I was the bug per se in this ordeal!

If you have any ideas as to how I can get this straightened out, I'm all ears, and ready to listen or read anything you might back to say. I feel as if I went to a very fine dining restaurant, prepaid, and only received just a salt and pepper containers to stare at. In reality, this has taken quite a toll on my life as I've had so many sleepless nights, that I wouldn't even try to guess how many nights I went with the sleep.

Thank you for your time and if there are any portions of this that don't make sense, it's because I'm so very tired ass last night, was one of those sleepless nights.

Thank you once again. And if you would like to donate to help me out, I have a PayPal account and my e-mail address is: windstarhelp@gmail.com and I wouldn't care if it's ones sent or the nearly $3,900.00 that it will take to finish my van.you have no idea how much I would appreciate even a penny as my Social Security income goes towards my living expenses and that's it.$893.00 doesn't go very far these days...
