On Tuesday, May 13th, a beautiful and courageous woman lost her fight against cancer. She fought it 4 times…and through it all, she was a beacon of light, strength and humor. I’ve honestly never met anyone more loving. My heart has been hurting since yesterday. It’s not until I opened up this file of pictures from last summer that the tears finally fell. She loved her husband, her son and his wife so very much. When I did this session for them last year it was nothing but laughs. She was a cut up and had a biting northerner sense of humor that was just incredible!! It was such an honor to be able to capture these memories for them.
Mama Finn, I will never forget you or the kindness you showed me. Thank you for your sweet words to me at Sarah & Richard’s wedding…and thanks for making me ruin my makeup by making me sob ;)!! I assure you, it is me, not you who is better for us having met. Nor will I forget the way you loved my dear friend, Sarah, like she was your own daughter. You were an angel here in earth (though your halo was probably a little crooked, as any great woman’s is)and now you are an angel on the other side. I know you will continue to be with your family and keep them smiling as you watch them through their lives.
