WTH?!?!? You limit a persons power in the middle of winter? I don't know what to say about this. It's absolutely that a person who fought his ass off for our freedoms died this way.

I ' care how much you owe, no one should have their power turned off/limited in cold winter months, especially a 93 year old living in Michigan.
