I first met Richad in 2003. He was a pan handler on St Croix and a regular fixture. He was also a friendly person and a notorious abuser of drugs.

Richard in 2008.

The last time I saw Richard was 2013. He was withdrawn, angry, and looked worse than ever. I assumed he was dead.

Richard 2016.

Flash forward a few years and it's obvious Richard has had some rehab, and dental work.

I wish him well.

That's not how I expected that story to turn out. I like a good happy ending!

Definite improvement. Did he win the lottery?
