After 34 Years together, Jim and Lon were separated due to the greed and deceit of Jim's adoptive sister.

The past 6 years Jim has suffered from Alzheimer’s Disease. He was hospitalized last year. His estranged sister filed for guardianship.

Jim and Lon had constructed legal instruments, including giving each other power of attorney, (POA) which was  never revealed in court. The court was never informed that Lon even existed, that he and Jim had made formal arrangements with each other and Lon was never mentioned nor considered nor notified of the court hearings which gave the sister guardianship and total control over Jim's life and assets.

The result?  Carolyn Heath Franks moved quickly and had her brother isolated and held in a nursing home.  Visitors, including Lon, are threatened with criminal trespass charges if they attempt to see him.  Lon has been physically dragged away from Jim and tossed into the street, and threatened.

All of this done to take the house, take the estate and to profit from the life's work of Jim.  And all of this done by a sister who plays the organ at church and paints herself as a pillar of the community.
