This is really just about acknowledging closure to myself. I speak it out loud, here, because it helps make it more solid, more time-to-move-on and leave, to the Universe, that which it does way better than I – arrange everything as it should be.
It’s just over a month since I found out that my mother died, in Chile, – nearly 6 weeks Before I heard. After more than 30 days of working to uncover what we are now certain, but can’t prove, was an orchestrated plot to bring about her death, I am resigning from this.
Never mind the grieving process, working to secure documents, from foreign authorities through the Canadian embassy; lengthy emails of the ‘story’ of events to the Canadian RCMP; the USA FBI; the Chilean police and the Celebrity ship line in an attempt to launch an investigation has been practically a full time job.
The ship line won’t give us any information. Their position is butt-covering. (Do yourself a favour – Before booking a cruise, thoroughly check out the lack of responsibility that Cruise ships have for the medical people on board. There’s nothing you can do about that, but you need the information to make an informed choice about taking a cruise or not. Ship lines, typically hire [as separate contractors, so that they are not accountable for them], medical people with questionable pasts, even revoked or No licences.) And ships are sovereign. When they are on the water, as opposed to near / in a port, they are Not under the jurisdiction of any particular country’s laws. That they have deep pockets only adds to the fact that when they choose Not to talk to the family of a person who became debilitatingly ill or died on one of their ships, becomes part of the impenetrable iron gate.) Research the internet for deaths aboard ships. This is Not grief talking.
The FBI’s position seems like its going to be – even though the fraud of the ‘con-man’ (see earlier post) resulted in the death of someone, we have to bring proof. Despite among other things, huge evidence in a 12 page ‘story of the events’, that he wrote, he did such a good job of executing the plan, we haven’t been able to secure undeniable verification! Remember: He’s in the USA. My husband and I are in Canada. One of my brothers who has been working on this with us now lives in Germany. Our mother’s death happened in Chile. The perfect crime? Not so. There is so much evidence to the contrary. However, none of us have the resources to pursue this in / through 4 countries:((
The RCMP – at this point is trying to help us get copies of documents of the police reports, witnesses, autopsy, cremation order … from the Fiscalia de Chile. We’ll see what happens. Beyond that, its looking UNlikely that the RCMP will decide to use public money to investigate and bring to justice, a crime against a 75 year old person who died in South America.
My mother died as a result of the lack of her life-support medications. She brought them with her, but they were withheld from her, by her ‘friend’(the con-man) and the medical people on the ship. I now have the official death certificate (Spanish) and a certified copy of the translation to English. The cause of death is directly related to a medication that kept water from building up around her heart.
I am exhausted from this – mind, body and soul weary. All our resources have been depleted.
I am thankful though, that despite the lifetime of abuse of me by my mother, the lying, cheating, stealing, abandonment, the giving away my brothers (who I found 17 years after) We have whole-heartedly tried to ‘do right by her’ on this.
And now I surrender it all to the Universe – trusting that somehow all the karmic pay-out will be taken care of ‘for the highest good of all’. 3 months ago
