So sad

Post by TomCofer » Thu Jan 18, 2018 1:50 am

A couple years ago, I photographed a co-worker, her daughter, and grandson. I learned today that her daughter died in a car accident. It's such a shock to learn that someone who was in front of your camera full of life and happiness has passed away. It was the young lady on the left, Gwenndolynn Blue McDaniel. She was the mother of two.

That's truly heartbreaking, Tom, even for someone who doesn't know them. She is a beautiful, vibrant young woman. If you haven't yet given the family a print of this lovely family portrait, I hope you will do so.

Thank you for sharing the sad story, something that could happen to any of us. Every day of life is precious, to be cherished.
