The Gentelman Mr. Forbes

 
This kindly gentelman Mr Forbes is the long term grounds keeper of a Research Station on the Island of San Salvador in the Bahamas. I'm told he knows all the Flora, and Fawna on the island, and has lived there his whole 72 yrs. He has survived his wife and three daughters, and is now sole provider for 9 grand children. I had to try capture his wonderful life lines.
