    In Georgia, deputies and movers refuse to evict a 103-year-old woman and her 83-year-old daughter. Msnbc's Tamron Hall has the story.

    A 103-year-old woman and her 83-year-old daughter got a last-minute eviction reprieve when sheriff's deputies and movers decided they couldn’t uproot the women from their longtime Atlanta home.
    Fulton County Sheriff’s deputies and a moving company hired by the bank showed up at Vita Lee’s Penelope Road home on Tuesday, according to a report on WSBTV.com. Deutsche Bank apparently holds the mortgage that is being serviced locally by Chase, the station reported. The planned eviction was reportedly the latest move in a legal battle that dates back years.
    But when the men saw the frail woman, they opted to leave instead of carry through with the forced move, WSBTV.com reported.

    The reprieve comes just three weeks shy of Lee’s 104th-birthday. Lee said she just wants to live out her last days in the place she has called home for more than half a century. "I love it. It’s a mansion," she said about the modest house.
    Still, the stress of the situation was apparently too much for Lee’s daughter, who reportedly was rushed to the hospital. Lee said she hopes now the bank will leave her alone.
    "Please don't come in and disturb me no more," Lee told WSBTV.com. "When I'm gone you all can come back and do whatever they want to."

    Well, this was just a "reprieve" at the "11th hour."

    Prayerfully, someone, an organization or church(es) will come forth to financially assist these Elders from losing their home.

    This is exactly why we need a safety net with at least some of our trillion dollars spending power, becuase when they cut SSI there will be tens of thousands of Black elderly that may not get a reprieve for their home or apartment

    NY is still grieving over Ealanor Bumpers!
