Adventures With The Deceased
Werner Tillinger & Philip Winkelmans
“I started crying! Very hard buckets of water were coming down my cheeks. I'm devastated. No words can describe my pain. I have just received an email from my brother informing me that my mother has passed away.”
This email was the first I heard of my friend Werner Tillinger’s dilemma. Werner had been staying with me for about a year and a half, as he was down on his luck and try as he might he was unable to find work. Werner is in his sixties and even though he has a vast amount of business and sales experience he’s in the age bracket where it seems his German Language and Age were going against him.
Finally, he decided he was getting nowhere in our town of Nanaimo, so with very little funds in his pocket he took off for California in his older SUV. He settled for Santa Rosa, Ca. He was there for about three weeks all the time sleeping in his car with no money. By the time he received his brother’s email he was down to fifty cents in his pocket.
Then things began to happen!
