    Story

    the guy on the left recently died of leukemia..he was a homeless man who the salvation army found a hostel for him in Greenwich.Chris was a kind and generous man who volunteered for the salvation army charity shop in west wickham ,kent.. he also loved his rock music and played in the band Bloodrain....chris was quite a guy he had many illnesses ,but didn't let that stop him from doing his voluntary work. each week he would make the 2 hour trip to the salvation army charity shop.and the sa charity shop in walworth.london.recently his so called g/f that chris had verbally said was next of kin.had chris cremated without telling anyone i.e; his friends and band members..we are totally upset and angry.how could someone do this? anyway i got in touch with his son...(even thought he didn't want his son to know he was so ill)and i respected his wishes for a while,. then i thought his son should really know .so i told chris's son.to cut a long story short i contacted the hospital only to be told chris g/f had arranged the funeral and chris was gone..words fail me here..i text his g/f and said she was evil and she text me and told me to tell the son to contact her. by phoning .needless to say he didn't want her getting nasty on the mobile .so i asked her to email the son.and she did. i quote from email (g/f) had apparently decided to tell the funeral home that the son would now be handling his fathers funeral entirely.including the bill of £1,821.00.... put bluntly if she had already claimed the sons inheritance after chris funeral and pocketed the sons inheritance.this stinks of fraud.i don't think there was any form of papers signed to clarify next of kin.. just verbal..she was not power of attorney .no-one was. i asked chris this when he was in hospital in the last few days.did she walk away with chris money after he died? ,and now she expects the son to pay for funeral service...so am hoping to raise some money to help pay the funeral costs.......words fail me...
