This is the story of 2 lawn boys who are longtime partners from the same picture-perfect Facebook page. Great smiles, great teeth, doing perfectly wonderful social activities, marriages, anniversaries and birthdays in a sunny beach community. They had been irreplaceable roommates in college.
There is one problem, though. They are poor – dirt poor. If they want to provide the perfect backdrop for their storybook page, a heritage of some kind, they must look to another family for an estate to inherit. They chose the estate of David Halle, my cousin. The simplicity of the plan was its brilliance. I’m sure they are repeating it now, somewhere, anywhere, anytime. It’s very repeatable. They forgot one thing, however, someone was watching from heaven. The vision came down from the command center to alarm me to the threat.
