Homeless man during El Niño shares his personal story

Freddie Aguilar is 48 years old and living on the street. He was taking cover from the rain today at a tiny strip mall in Sunland. I had a conversation with him about the weather and asked how he ended up homeless. This is what Freddie said:

"I’m living on the street because my girl died of cancer of the uterus in 2012. When she was sick, I wasn’t going to leave her in the hospital for two months battling the disease that she had. I lost everything because of her and I didn’t care. It was all material stuff, the one thing I miss is her. I would have sold my soul to the devil for her, that’s how much I loved her. Her name was Flor Marlene Bryant. When you lose material things, it’s just material things but when you lose somebody you love, it hurts more than anything.”
