We Are Not Guaranteed Tomorrow

One regret I have is not asking Guy and his wife to schedule a photoshoot before he passed. Guy was good friend of my in-laws and we saw him often, but this is the only photo I have of him.

When I ask people to take a photo they will say we are too busy, or we don't any free time, or when I lose 10 pounds. They tell me they don't like being in front of the camera or they don't have anything to wear. 

We are not guaranteed tomorrow. On a seemingly normal September morning in 2001 over 2,000 mothers, fathers, brothers, and sisters thought they were going to work at the World Trade Center but never returned. Three thousand people today will get a phone call telling them that the test was positive and they have cancer. 

Look I realize a photo can't bring someone back, but it can help you remember them after they are gone. A mother can leave an image of herself as she wants to be remembered by her kids. Grown siblings that maybe don't spend that much time together or with their parents can have a large image made, maybe 40 x 60, and give it to their parents to hang above the fireplace or in the great room so every day their parents can see their creation, their gift from God, as they enter that room.
