Sad example of the reality of foreclosures

This may be the most important post I've ever made. This touched me and hit me harder than any other real estate related thing I've ever seen. The picture tells the story. I've never cried in front of a customer before, but on this day, at this time, I did. He was very somber too. I think it hit home with him too. We never spoke about it again. We left the house and continued on our journey to look at other homes. I have a new understanding and a new view of foreclosed homes now. Every home has a story. If walls could talk...these walls did.
These notes were written on the wall in two different rooms. How do they make you feel? Not all foreclosures were dead beats or losers or people that CHOSE to not pay their mortgage.
