To begin with, her youngest daughter and her son-in-law were supposed to buy Thia’s house because Thia could not meet the mortgage payments.
Thia was awfully glad when the loan was approved for them to buy the house—around July.
But, to Thia’s utter disbelief, her son-in-law backed off the deal, and Thia was caught with three mortgage payments behind. Such was the first stage of the cave in!
At the time Thia was working for a pittance in Mr. Coo’s neighborhood bar. But in a desperate attempt to make money to catch up with the mortgage payments she switched work to a barroom that offered her more money.
