In this Jan. 6, 2011 photo, Laverl Nicholson wipes snow from the grave marker of one of his daughters on his former property in Thompson Falls, Mont. Nicholson had $220,000 left on his mortgage when the bank foreclosed on his house and the eight acres where two of his daughters are buried. The asking price for the northwestern Montana home has now dropped to $87,000 after nobody was willing to bid more. Nicholson, a sawmill maintenance contractor until a debilitating car wreck left him unable to work, says he can afford the payments at that price, but the bank wasn't willing to work with him on modifying his mortgage. less
