Sad family photo

Sad family photo

There we see the owner of the house and his family. This was a real person. He had a real life, and a real family. He spent almost two decades of his life alone -- and died alone -- a fate far worse than anyone deserves. No word on what happened to the girls, or who they even were, but the wife (left) is deceased. In memory of Fred Salomon. God bless.

Note that throughout the house, there is not a single photo of his son laying out in the open. I can only wonder why. Sadly, after the pain of outliving his wife, he also outlived his only child, who died in 2003 from cancer which had rapidly consumed him. Thus, the closest relative is a single 17 year old grandson that lives in California and his mother, who would be Fred's daughter in-law.
