A year ago yesterday my Grandpa "finished" as my Uncle Wayne says. The Apostle Paul wrote, "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith" (2 Timothy 4:7). The same was true for my Grandpa, though the wasn't the type of man to say so in those words. His life left no doubt of his course.
As our family initially dealt with my Grandpa's death, I wasn't sure I wanted to take photos. I felt a depth of emotion I didn't know I had the capability to experience. It would have been easier not to remember. But photography is part of how I express myself and I had to take pictures.
