Evicting a 99 year old lady — and her dogs

Bea Berglund’s adoring dog

Good Night, God!

Evicting a 99 year old lady! Really! I am sure the Bank of America is within its legal rights to clear the land they bought after the owner died owing taxes. But LEGAL isn’t the same thing as RIGHT or KIND or maybe even decent?

I’m a bit touchy about evictions since the nice family next door turned up “missing.” After noticing they were gone for longer than usual I asked around. They had been evicted. They hadn’t said a word to us. Would we have helped? Could we have helped? We never had a chance to find out.

But, we do have a chance to help Bea Berglund and her dogs. She is a 99 year old neighbor of a friend of mine who lives in the desert land of Newberry Springs. And she is due to be evicted October 5th by the Bank of America. Please God, could you find a way for someone in charge at the Bank of America to find out about this and do something? I know You don’t normally interfere in our business practices. But, could you make an exception for Bea and her dogs?

She would be grateful for an extension. It isn’t easy to move — and it doesn’t get any easier as we get older — especial at 99! As for myself, I would be grateful if you could just get folks to read more about it in my friend’s blog.  It’s savingbea.wordpress.com
