This boy lives at the Mission of the Immaculate Virgin Group Home in the Laconia neighborhood. A heart-shaped gift from his girl friend is displayed on the wall. He is nearing 18 years of age and must soon leave the home.
This sad scene suggests a violent end, as a teenager's casket is carried by family and friends along St. Ann's Avenue in the North New York neighborhood. The deceased's girl friend, at the front of the procession, is comforted by an older woman.
