Homeless Man Dies of Diabetes in Skid Row

Last night when the skid row music festival was over, a group of us stayed to pick up trash and clean the street. While we were cleaning up we came across an altar that couple of homeless people had put together for one of their soul-diers who had passed away. I was told that the man passed away on January 12th and most likely died of diabetes. Gene was known as a very humble man who stayed on his wheelchair in the place where his friends made a special altar for him. The altar was probably put no more than 15mins after the festival was over. One of the residents stated that it wasn’t there while the show was going on. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends. May Gene Rest In Peace.
