In our opinion, the work is below standard and needs to be repaired or put back to its original state. (I have over 250 pictures documenting the deteriorating condition of the property before we knew about it, the improvement after we spent several hours cleaning it of mold and filth, and the unapproved work that has been done to it.) The property value has been adversely affected by the demolition/remodeling/unauthorized work. There are very visible flaws and some work will not hold up to use. The disrespect for Clint's rights and the damage done has changed the entire situation.
Clint issued a cease and desist letter last night, followed up with a formal letter today, and will check on the property immediately. If the cease and desist is not respected and the construction equipment immediately removed, he has no choice but to return to the Suffolk Court House to file an injunction to stop the work, and file a law suit for damages as well as other charges. He also plans on obtaining another copy of the public probate records to see if any changes have been made without his knowledge.
Please pray for Clint as he tries to walk circumspectly through the through greed, outright hatred, and deliberate deceptiveness the other side keeps throwing at him. While we were shocked by the sight that met us in every room of the house, very little surprises us about this person any more. Their behavior and character is repugnant. Since November 2010, they have repeatedly proven themselves as someone who desires harm to come to our family. They will keep taking hits at every opportunity, but we know God will protect and bless those who walk with integrity. Please ask the Lord to keep us from stumbling any more than we have and for His guidance as we proceed. Thank you to those who continue to stand with us.
A good part of the trip is that Clint was looking for things for the children to have of their grandparent's. Hidden under dust, cloth, and empty boxes, he and Amanda made some wonderful finds! I have some cleaning to do and there is a big trip down Clint's memory lane to make with our children.
While this part of our lives is not enjoyable, the rest of our lives are really good. There are lot of wonderful things and changes in the works. I am eager to share what God is doing when it is the right time to do so. Even in the midst of a storm that seems to have no end, we are still praising the Lord and giving Him the glory, for He is worthy!
