Family and friends gather outside the home of Fatera Dorestan to mourn his loss in Naples on July 23, 2009. Fatera Dorestan, 52, died after he drove his 1995 Nissan pickup truck into a waterway near 10420 Gulfshore Drive on July 19, 2009. Dorestan was a father of five, grandfather of eleven and was one of two pastors at the First Haitian Baptist Church in East Naples. Haitians from as far away as Canada came to the home of Dorestan to pray and comfort family. It is Haitian tradition for members of the community to visit the house of the deceased daily until the funeral. Greg Kahn/Staff
