A woman who works for the city of Detroit was preparing to bury her husband when she got a call from the funeral home saying her husband wasn't insured.

Devastated over her loss and frustrated about not having enough money, Yolanda King called 7 Action News for help.

She said she thought her husband was covered because money was still coming out of every paycheck for the insurance. King had to borrow thousands of dollars from her family to bury her husband.
