A: Do you know?

This is Brenda Wheeler. Brenda's 11-year-old son Andy has just died in a horrible crushing accident at the farm her husband works at directly across the street from where they live. This photo is the first time since Andy's death that anybody has been allowed into Andy's bedroom. Brenda shared a book with me (and a reporter) that was created for the Wheeler family by Andy's classmates. This was a very emotional assignment.

    Thank you Richard. The family was directed to me after being inundated by lacal and state media. As a member of the media I was familiar with the local players and able to act as a buffer. It seemed to have really helped.

    What a touching (and difficult) moment. I have had to do this too, not easy.

    Thanks, guys... Being a photojournalist isn't always high school sports and presidential candidates. Most of the time it's real people with real problems. The best we can do is listen~
