Help Please

Hi guys, I have been asked to make a Sympathy card for a "Grandfather".  I am appealing to the digital artist and digital store owners here, I need an image of an older man from the back. I am more than happy to purchase. I have a design idea in mind but it would require an image of an older man...very little if any hair, from the back so I could place him at the bottom of a stair case.  If anyone knows of an image like this or similar please contact me.  Thanks in advance you guys are awesome :)
