Thanks, Shaun

My mother told me that someone robbed him and beat him severally. He had a grocery store and he was walking home with money from the store when the robbery occurred. This must have been when he was older.

This is an incredible picture.

I know that it is the way the picture was taken, but it looks like he is sitting on a chair that is a lot smaller than him, so it seems like his feet are dangling.

Thanks for sharing.
