Tom went about a middle of Richmond sometimes and take some foods out of dust at a backdoor of a restaurant. When he went back to his house with the foods, Suzan said "Oh my kind boy," but her face was sad every time.
She had very strong and stiff desire that Tom will get out of the poor living and be happy. She said to Tom time after time, "Tommy boy, you have to have power of heart against any sort of walls and have a walk in a light side by sun of a street in your living days. Take a look round you and make discovery something which is better than others in yourself. You're so special. You're my light of hope."
