“I’ve Still Got Your 6’s”
My thoughts:
To a close friend or perhaps my brothers…a HERO bigger than life…..an animated adventure……Best Friends………..!
I’ve got your back. I have and I always will!
So STILL……… and FOREVER!


“Can You Hear Me Now?”
My thoughts:
I think this is the sweetest kiss I’ve ever seen! A great photograph!
There are hearts and triangles everywhere……..This is a man well loved, Sending thumbs-ups back to the people he loves!


“Love the Little Children”
My thoughts:
Like a Glorious sunset……….
A sight to behold……………….Just before a peaceful rest!


“Close at Heart”
My thoughts:
This to me is becoming a universal soldier………..at ease………..
The Medic Symbol……….The International Red Cross………
The Ribbons………
The Legacy……….
Children are the hope we hold in our hearts!

I met the family of Captain Cory Jenkins ( mother, father, 2 brothers, a sister-in-law and a niece) for the first time at the reception. A very nice family, a pleasure to meet and an honor to have done the portraits for them.

“Close at Heart”seemed to be their favorite

   Just a note……. the family told me that Captain Cory Jenkins had only gone to the village twice to inoculate the children for a cholera outbreak so the picture of him and the children was possibly taken the day he died.
