Rhea experienced personal hardships and eventually tragedy, but Integrity stuck by her through the worst of times.
Rhea: My husband and I were looking for a vehicle to purchase. I needed a vehicle. Due to my bad credit history, it was hard for me to find a car. So, he had told me about Integrity because he already had a vehicle with them. So, I went and I purchased this lovely Chevy Malibu.
About two years later, my husband got terminally ill. He had stage three renal failure. They ended up having open heart surgery and amputations of different limbs on his body. I was an emotional wreck. I had spoken with my Dealers Finance representative, and she really, really helped me through that. Instead of me being delinquent, she had put me on some program so she could hold my payments until I was able to start back with my regularly scheduled payment arrangements.
If it had not been for that, I would have lost my job and my car. I mean, you know, it would have just trickled down. And, a couple of months later, my husband passed. And I was still able to keep my car.
That is your livelihood; that is how you pay your rent; that’s how you feed your children; that’s how you get back and forth to work or medical appointments or anything. It’s everything. Transportation, especially in Oklahoma City, is everything.
