Gosh, ..., that sounds awful ! I can't imagine how something like that might happen. Be kind to yourself, as you are so kind and helpful to so many other people. I don't, obviously, know enogh about exactly what happened to knwo what might be done about it. At least you can analyze what happened, make a plan so it couldn't happen again? Is there some way to help the company make up some of the loss ?
