Maria Serrano had already suffered her greatest loss: In 1995, a metal rod burst out of a Los Angeles trash truck and punctured a school bus, killing her 8-year-old son, Brian. Eventually, Serrano settled a lawsuit and used the money to buy houses for herself and her sister in Temple City. Now, as a consequence of apparent deception by a relative and foreclosure by a bank, she has lost the two-house property and is about to be evicted.
