Every once in a while, I pull out my old photo album. It has all my baby and school photos in it. I also have some old black and white photos that my brother-in-law took in the early seventies. This is one of them. It is my nephew, Michael. He died a few years back at the age of 35. He had two wonderful children and a wonderful wife at the time. They had just moved to Tennessee to be near my sister and to start a new job. One day driving home from work, he just drove off the road and was in a tragic accident that took his life.
I'll always remember Michael and how family was so important to him. There are many times I still think of him, and my heart aches at the loss. It is those times I sit and have a little talk to him. I know he can't talk back, but I know he's listening.
Anyway, here is a lo that I did with one of those very special pictures of our Michael.
