She told me she was born 1951 in Richmond, VA. In the 1960s, she moved with her mother and father to Florida. They lived in Immokalee for a time. She graduated from Immokalee High School in 1971. Her family moved backed and forth from Immokalee to Naples to Immokalee. In 1982, she and her boyfriend moved into a house in Golden Gate Estates. That house was foreclosed on and she now lives alone on the streets. She was vague as to year the housed was foreclosed, but I think it's been within the last couple of years. She has a huge amount of stuff in shopping carts. Somehow she manages to push these all by herself.
Pinky is a sweet woman - more than willing to talk to me. I printed up some of the photos and gave them to her. She was happy to have them!
Pinky's story makes me count my blessings - that's for sure!
