Here’s a follow up to a story that you guys went off on and now we have a happy ending. The 101-year-old Detroit woman who was evicted from her home of 58 years after her son failed to pay a mortgage got her house back! God is goooooood!

Texana Hollis remains in hospital however, after suffering from severe anxiety after her belongings were thrown in a dumpster and locks were placed on her doors Monday.

Her son Warren Hollis who shared his mom’s Detroit home LIED! He initially told WXYZ that the house was seized because he didn’t pay property taxes for more than seven years. It turns out he’d taken out a second mortgage on the home for $32,000 that he claims was spent primarily on house repairs, a car and donations to his church.

Ms Hollis cried as she told her WXYZ that she only found out about the back taxes the night before she was evicted.

Chief district judge Marilyn Atkins said the court officer who processed the case after the house was foreclosed had been “been working with the son for a week before the eviction was done.” A council woman went to talk to the local office of the US Department of Housing and Urban Development for help. A court office cut the locks and there are also plans to rehabilitate the house and get daily nursing care for Hollis so she can return home.
