I just emailed him. I think that Ash also has RC's phone number.
I spoke to him on the phone for about an hour a couple weeks ago.
He was doing ok. Well, as ok as can be because of the situation he's in.
I debated whether or not to post this because it is RC's personal business, but I feel that he would probably tell you all the same things and wouldn't be angry with me for telling you.
His (common law) wife Tara Sue is near death. She's in a nursing home and has lost many of her regular bodily functions. She's basically shutting down.
Remember how he did 30 days in jail for drinking earlier this year?
Well, that cost him his children. The state took them and put them in foster care.
All he's gotta do is wait until January and he gets them back.
On top of that, Tara Sue is no longer working and RC can't afford the mortgage payments on their old farmhouse on his own. So he's going to be losing his house soon.
He told me that he hoped to get a two bedroom apartment for him and his kids soon.
So to sum it all up, just about every f***ed up thing that could happen to him has happened.
He told me that he's taking it in stride and trying to be as upbeat about it as possible.
If I hear anything more from him, I'll be sure to let you all know.
