“Soon after Ron had asked us for his last draw and we refused, the local police pulled into our driveway and asked Don to come to the station with them, stating they have some questions for him. A bit in shock and with curiosity, Don complies and heads to the police station. Lo and behold, our so-called Christian builder Ron decided to tell the police that Don took a gun, slammed it into Ron’s forehead, and threatened to kill him if he didn’t finish our house! What! Don kind of laughed and asked, ‘Is this a joke or something?’ No, this was serious.” --Michelle and Donald Cegledi
