So, I don't really know where to start with this post. Yesterday my brother Donald went to court for a first-time DWI offense that occurred last July with a motor vehicle accident. One of the people in the car had serious injuries, everyone else was okay. She was not in the seat belt. Long and short of this, is I desperately need prayer, because I am at a loss for what to do. He was sentenced to four years in State Prison, and one year in County Jail. He will be in Phelps County for a week, and then transfer to Fulton MO, where he'll be for 30 days getting evaluated, with no outside contact. After that, he might possibly stay at Fulton or they might transfer him to Moberly, or Farmington. So, I need wisdom for a lot of decisions that need to be made. He's going to lose his home to foreclosure. He did not sign a durable power of attorney. My niece is almost 30 years old and Clueless. So, this is all being dumped on me. I have to try to get back down there this week, and get a durable Power of Attorney form signed and notarized, and then start figuring out what to do with all of his stuff. Getting things boxed up and figuring out where they're going to be stored. I thought, since this was his first offense, that he might do County jail time, was community service, and probation. I never dreamed they would send them to the State Penitentiary as he has no prior record. I'm not going to lie, I'm devastated. I know that he deserves punishment, but I felt this was really a severe punishment, maybe it's not.He is angry at me today, because he told me over the phone yesterday that he wanted to die. When I went to drop his things off at jail, I told the police officer what he had said, because I was worried. He does battle depression, so he is on suicide watch. He told me this morning that, thanks to me, he's in a room with nothing but concrete blocks, no windows, and nothing to do all day, he can't even have a Bible. Honestly, I don't know how much more my nerves can take, I've always been strong. I feel like I've dealt with so much over the years with him, as well as stuff in my own life. This so overwhelming, I dont feel strong, i feel really downtrodden and tired. I just need prayer thank you. Please, no judgement, just pray.
