Husband’s Suicide Over Foreclosure, Wells Fargo to Evict Wife Anyway

Husband’s Suicide Yesterday, Wells Fargo to Evict Wife Tomorrow Anyway

So, it was Sunday… yesterday… around 10:00 AM… and Norm couldn’t get the motorhome running. He must have realized that he couldn’t handle the shame of seeing his wife and stepson evicted with nowhere to go… living on the street. I don’t know how anyone could face that reality. I don’t think I could.

How could it be that just 12 years before they had put their life savings down on their first and likely last home? They had done everything right, but nothing was right anymore, and I’m sure to Norm Rousseau, nothing would ever be right again.

Their church had offered to help them, maybe find them somewhere to stay temporarily, and that would be fine for his wife and her son… but not for him. I’m sure he wept as he looked at the engine parts laying there, realizing that it was over.

Norm Rousseau called me a couple of months ago. He wasn’t asking me to help him, in fact, he never even told me about what he was going through with Wells Fargo. No, Norm was concerned about someone else who was losing a home. A really good person who’s done so much for so many others, was how he described her. It wasn’t right what the banks were doing he said. He was hoping that I could do something to help someone he knew, because she was someone whp had helped others… but he didn’t say a word about himself.

Norman Rousseau gave up over that engine that sits in pieces in his driveway today, the sun shining down making the metal parts hot to the touch. Maybe it was the frustration of having nowhere to turn for justice, maybe it was the shame he felt that somehow he had let his family down… even though that was not the case at all.

Sometime mid-morning on Sunday Norm Rousseau ended his own life. He went into his garage and shot himself. At one point he could have reinstated his loan, that’s what he had planned to do, but Wells Fargo had made that impossible… they stripped him of everything he had.

And now, his wife and stepson are to be evicted at 6:00 AM tomorrow morning. They have nowhere to go, they have no money, they are still in shock over the loss of Norm.

    Wells Fargo scum of the earth. Wells has no heart and no soul. Asking them to behave as if they care is not even realistic. My prayers go out to this family, so tragic.

      I agree-wonder how and when this will end. Total fraud-people dying and the banks don’t even own the mortgage on chain of title. People really feel helpless-attorneys, congress, the president, judges-all seem to be working for the great corporate banking system. So, will the end be all of us tax payers homeless, dead or in FEMA camps? We were promised CHANGE. Hmmmm. We need to rebuild the bridges in this country (infrastructure) so we have something to jump off of or live under.

        Yes we were promised change, but we were not promised change for the better. With the way things are going even the bridges will be off limits.
