I had another post about my father in law as he was nearing the end and he passed peacefully last Saturday, but I wanted to post this one separately as to get it "exposure". One of the things that he discussed with his pastor was that he would like to set up what was being called a "durable medical goods fund", since he was in need of a wheelchair near the end he used one that his chair loaned him, until he got one from the V.A., and he thought how wonderful it would be if people could donate used wheelchairs and walkers and things of this sort so that when someone in need needed them they were there and the pastor twice talked to him about it so we thought that it was a done deal as we could have contributions go towards that. But yesterday my wife said the pastor told my mother in law Monday that they can't do that "in case someone would fall and hurt themselves and sue the church". I don't know if this is a legit thing, maybe someone else at church weighed in on it and is afraid of that, does that even sound like something that could happen, the church getting sued if someone fell at their home or somewhere else? Of course the thought runs through our mind and maybe this isn't even close but do they want the money for something else at church? I'm sure he being so well known and loved will bring in a good amount of money. We also said it could be donated to the church to go towards the local soup kitchen, Pop donated many hours there serving people, and now my wife and sister in law said if this is the case they will designate that the money go towards the music department as he was involved with the choir and all for MANY years and they are always struggling money wise. Just curious what you think, does this sound legit the reason he says they can't do it? Any lawyers out there lol?!
