“Even though I was being dragged down negatively as well, it didn’t affect me as much as seeing mom get all of this thrown at her,” Olivia said. “She really took it all on her back, only. There are a lot of people who were in that situation, and a lot of other relatives, and I don’t know another person’s name.”
