...what a terrible, terrible experience. I just don't have the words to express...
I hope when you think of her you remember that last hug and that she loved you. Even though that was 18 years ago, I can only imagine the pain must still be very sharp and very real. I'm very sorry for your loss.
Your experience is filled with so much suffering, and you probably continue to ask why. This has to have been so difficult and yet you have focused on the beauty around you through your photography. My thoughts and prayers are with you!
Thank you for sharing your feelings with these great photos..I have a heavy heart also when I think of my mom, two sisters and aunt I lost from 1988 - 1992...was awful, but God was by my side and brought me through. He was with me also when I had my bout with cancer, but I am a five year survivor and can relate with compassion to others. That's what He intended. Enjoy the beauty of the snow and be thankful for your ability to capture it's beauty and share with others. :)
