I am so thankful for the opportunity this morning, to take photos of my dad. His stamina has gone way down in the last week or so. We felt like we better do that as soon as possible. He naps quite a bit and doesn't make it out of the house much so to have him over here was a special treat. Thank you Lord for blessing us with this extra time with Boppa and that our family now has some wonderful photos to look back on.

Lord willing, my parents will celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary on August 14th.
Please pray that they get that chance.

I love you Daddy!

What do I say? He's your dad, of course, but he's also my brother. I had a nice chat with him last week and he did sound weak. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE WONDERFUL PICTURES! Seeing so many familiar looks and 'faces' brings the tears and reminds me of how much I want to be there! Praying for you, too, Angel. Love, Aunt Linda

Oh, Angel, what beautiful memories and tender moments captured forever through the lens of a camera! I'm so glad you were able to take these photos. The photo of Emily with her Boppa had me in tears. And the one of you and him is simply stunning. We continue to pray for him and will add August 14th to the prayers. ((HUGS)) my dear friend.

What gorgeous and meaningful photos, Angel. They are all priceless, but the one of you with your dad is especially beautiful and poignant. What a 'moment' to have on film.

I so hope you and your family will have more of those special stolen moments in the weeks to come. I continue to keep you all in my prayers as we too remain mindful of how precious time and togetherness truly are.

Radiation treatments end for me tomorrow -- at last -- and we are doing our best to embrace the sweet summer routine as I recover and wait for one last surgery this fall. There is much healing to do (in mind, body, and spirit) and I am hoping that, somehow, I'll be able to do just that in time.
