hello I'm Abby, i'm 23 and currently living i'm my mothers home.my mom, karen anne haney lubin was an brilliant vibrant nature loving woman who past on october 12 2013. we moved from brooklyn, new york when i was 17. my family had been experiencing home difficulty due to debt and had to sell our home, my mom dealt with so much in the last last year we were their, alcoholism, unemployment of my father due to cancer, ruthless debt collectors at the home at all hours and me i was in and out of residential and private schools to help with behavioral issues, that was so hard for for her. she at the age of 22 had lost both her parents and left with two sister had no option but to marry a lawyer who helped her get custody of her already scared and abused like her sisters. one of which later married very well to an oil miner. in our last year in brooklyn having already moved 3 times and began to pursue a divorce from my father whom she stayed with 3 years after they got they own bedroom for the benefit of me and my mental issues i was dealing with still at that age, my dear uncle offered to buy my mother and me a home close to my aunt in massachusetts to relieve us from the lifestyle and debt of our family. three months and a divorce later me my mother and the pets were packed and on our way to 247 conway street greenfield mass. i hated it here, so far from anything and my friends, but my mom with her love of all plants and animals was in paradise. she being an artist as well made the home her own. without my fathers clutter she was free to make it herself and thats what she did. she painted all the walls 3 or 4 times each, she took her little poodle keke into the yard front and back which to him looked like a park every day until the end making it the most intelligently arranged and flourishing wonderland with evergreens to roses all living together and making it a plants eden. she spent 5 months picking a carpet she didn't love in the end and never hushed up about and cleaned it like she breathed. when my mother passed, my aunt who has since divorced and started her own business for which my mother worked, held and hosted the service there. it was the perfect place, my mother worked there painting the offence and making and tending the garden. she loved it in that wide open lace she last year finished her self proclaimed 'mark on mass' the labyrinth. its the most beautiful mix of landscaping and art, and the only site capable of holding my mothers servis and was so beautiful and almost just what she would have wanted. i say almost because my aunt and owner of the business and building, had 2 fine officers of northampton PD block me out with their cars and escort me of my aunts property and away from my mothers services. shortly after arriving home my uncle and owner of my mothers house came to the door in town for the service to tell me id be having to find a new place to live as he now with my mother gone wanted to sell her home. she being a carpenter's daughter aside from the painting and landscaping had since moving in improved and expanded both the front porch and back deck, as well as put in new shelving and doors inside and outside the house AND repaved both the front walk and drive way. as result the home has more than doubled in price. i dont know a better way to say i want this home to stay with me. this home is my mother and all i have left of her, the garden, the walls, all of it. she had very little of value and i'm not well off and cant afford to buy the home of the 40,000.00 i'm inheriting as her only child and heir. on may 1st i need to be out and ill be homeless and forced to sell many of her loved furnishing and above all art. i realize its a week request but to any who can spare please help me raise money to save this home thats all i have of my mom from becoming profeit for an already rich man.
