What are my right regarding the repossession of rented personal property?

Question Details:

I rented property from rent-to-own place but lost my job so I could no longer make payments. One of the items is a refrigerator; so I couldn't easily just give it back. They sued me but I wasn't able to go to court. No they say that they are having the sheriff come to assist them in getting their stuff. As I understood the lawsuit papers, it was merchandise or payment. What are my rights and do I have to let them take the merchandise?
