February 3, 2011


My mom passed away early this morning. My sister Jean has been caring for her since my dad died 20 years ago. Jean was with her all the time since she suffered a heart attack on Sunday. Jean asked her daughter Cynthia to take a photo of the car as my mom was taken away. I decided to see what I could come up with that might be representative of the feelings of that moment. Here Jean is watching as mom is driven off. Dave, her husband is outside. I thought a B&W treatment would be about right.

Sorry to hear the news John, not an easy thing no matter what our age.

Condolences to all of you, I know your Mom was a good Christian woman, sharp and active most of her days. Your sister was sure a loving daughter to her. Your Mom must have been so proud of all of you. The wintery background and b&w do convey so much emotion. Our prayers are with you.
