June 2007 - The end of a long weekend. A day trip to the shore to say goodbye to my brother Bobby who, is in the background, as his best friend bids farewell to him and his wife. They were getting set to return to Seattle. 2 days prior Bob broke our hearts with news that he had cancer. He vowed to fight it as long and hard as he could, but "when the cancer takes a left turn" he said- "there's nothing more I can do". In November of 2009, it turned left and he succumed. I happened to turn image as John embraced Lennis and catch this moment.

    The initial impact here is moving and readily apparent. Coupled with the narrative it kicks the wind out of me.My condolences to you.
