I'm sure you all are thinking just like I did. You assume that Rich and Melanie have insurance that is going to cut them a big fat check.
I wish that I could tell you that was true. I really do.
They had no insurance.
They had what they called self-insured insurance. Meaning that the house and it's belongings were all paid for, and there was a little money set aside in case any repairs needed to made. But there is not enough self-insurance money for anything catastrophic like this. No one...ever expects this to be them.
There is no big payout. No check. No insurance.
The car insurance does not cover the vehicles that have been lost because it falls under homeowners...which they do not have.
That is why we are desperate to get money together for the Atens. If you have a little to spare, please visit the gofundme account set up by Anita and donate. It is beyond appreciated.
