I just love that picture. It tells something about the subject.
The picture is one of my favorites, Pam. It shows a young man full of love for his family and others. He was a gentle soul and I miss him even today.

What an awesome photo. I can't help but think that someone will run across this entry sometime and find it's the person they are looking for...How are you related to him?

Bushy brows draw together as the old man draws paint Over the wood – he tried to make his shaking hand glide smoothly. Both the paint and the brush left a squiggly line, By the look of his face You knew he was not pleased with his efforts.
