Narrative of this Piece
The Sharpe Men have a legacy of fighting fires... literally and figuratively. Pictured from left to right are Amos Sharpe, Elroy Sharpe, and Finch Sharpe. Amos is a first-generation Firefighter and Elroy decided to follow in his footsteps. Now retired, Amos spends his time with his grandson Finch. Because Amos was an excellent father to Elroy, he is able to enjoy watching him pass down family wisdom to his grandson. Finch loves his grandfather. He teaches him the latest social media fads, and though Amos doesn’t completely understand it, he enjoys humoring Finch just to see him smile.
