LAKE DIVERSION, TX (KAUZ) -

Two weeks after residents of Cara Blanca Park, Lake Diversion found out their lot leases would not be renewed, many still have no idea what they're going to do. 

"I planned on retiring here and staying here for the rest of my life. Now they're going to kick me off of here," Larry Moon said. 

Moon bought his fishing cabin back in 1997 and said the last two weeks have been rough for him and his family. 

"It's been hell. It really has," he said. 

His son James, built a new deck for his father's home and was preparing to head back up north when his father received the notice. 

"The reason I'm still here is because we don't know what we're going to do with him. I don't know where we're going to move him, what we're going to do with anything, how we're going to take care of it. I've been trying to find employment while I'm down here just so I can try and help," James Moon said. 

When asked if he had contacted a lawyer to see if there was anything that could be done, Larry said he did not have the money. 

 "I'm not rich. I'm dirt poor," he said. 

During a meeting two weeks ago residents did not have many suggestions on how to fight this. Most own their homes but not the land they sit on. This has left them with little to no options. 

"I guess I'll have to go to a retirement home or something. I can't even afford that really," Larry Moon said. 

Los Angeles Rams owner Stan Kroenke purchased the Waggoner Ranch in February. These notices were sent to residents the first week of August. Sherrill and Gibson Attorney at Law, who sent the notices to residents, could not be reached Saturday for comment.
