The old shoemaker.I sat there, next to him, many times. I watched him work and I watched him aging. Last time I saw him in is workshop he was tired, a widower and, although never alone, he became a very lonely man.
He was a shoemaker, a great friend and a personal hero. He was my grandfather. Never forgotten. ♥
