A glimpse of the life -- and death --
of a homeless man

I saw Dennis just a few hours before he died. His dog, Gloria, was with him (as always).

I was out at a homeless camp in the woods not far from downtown Orlando, looking for a few of my clients. Dennis asked how life was treating me ...

A few hours later, he was hit by a car and killed.

The Orlando Sentinel report is sweet and touching and illuminating. Usually, this kind of thing gets two or three sentences. Instead, this time, the readers get a real look at the life -- and death -- of a homeless man.
