12. Alpin at Rose’s table, 1976
“Rose Dehutt was a second mom to me. She was in her early 20s and she put me under her wing and became a saving grace in my life because at that time my parents really weren’t taking care of me. Rose would feed me and sew my clothes. She owned a nice car and we would go cruising around the island together and do a lot of wonderful things. I named my daughter Natalie Rose after Rose. I have a really big space in my heart where Rose lives.”
