FKL,
Does his wife still need assistance with finances? I don't have much to give but I have something. Is the GFM still the best way?
NoChai,
Yes, and yes. Anything is much appreciated.

Thumbs up Update and thanks to all

Walt's widow called telling me she got some further correspondence from the VA and we met today. After many "fits and starts", notices of disagreement and added submission, VA finally came around and determined Walt's death from ischemic heart disease was service-connected. I thank God that his attending physician spent 4 years as an Army Doc and he wrote up Walt's condition in the progress notes reflecting what all was going on. Walt's actual cause of death was pneumonia secondary and if that alone were on the death certificate our efforts with the VA would have lasted for years. After a long push and pull and a couple of notices of disagreement, VA rated Walt 100 % disabled from the date he was admitted to the hospital and went into the coma to the date of his death. VA is still not reading their own paperwork and denying her death gratuity, but we will address that. Bottom line, she will get CHAMPVA and Chpt 35 education benefits and after all these months of financial hardship can get back with the remainder of her life.

Again my Brothers and Sisters, thank you for all you did for Walt's widow during her time of need. SOCNET rocks.
