Asked how long been in the Bay Area. 2 years. Asked where he was before. Prison for 27 years.

He was an alcoholic. A man raped his wife (maybe killed her). He broke their hearts so he took his. Blew his heart out (with a shotgun?) his kids were 13 and 18 when it happened. Now he is a grandfather of 5.

He used to weigh 230 pounds, drove a motorcycle, best buds with Jack Daniels.

Now he works at Dropbox and another company, late at night. Works two jobs. Went to school for 19 years or something to get a degree.

He said something about money being tight or having plenty of it working two jobs. Couldn’t really make it out.
