I have this neighbor in his 60s that has a 16 yrs old granddaughter living with him. He was a very rude man about 15 yrs ago when i first meet him, one of those people that wouldn't even say hello to you. My mother told me recently that he gained custody of the girl because the parents were abusive to her, they would beat her to the the point she had to have surgery to do facial reconstruction before the age ten. One of the parents is either in jail or dead from what i gathered. He is now a different person, a better person. I'm sure there's a lesson to be learned there.
