We will miss you Joan

I posted this last year, but it needed to be posted again.

Joan is my mothers very close  friend.  They met at work in the early 80’s and became friends shortly after that.   They both have a very dry sense of humor (maybe that’s where I get mine eh?) and have very similar likes and dislikes which is why they got along so well.   Diagnosed with brain & lung  cancer last summer,  she could no longer work and so she took her pension this fall.

I don’t remember seeing a lot of pictures of Joan, of course, no-one in my immediate family was a photographer, so I offered Joan a portrait session.  Not just for her, but for my mother also, and me, and everyone else who knows Joan.

Unfortunately Joan passed away this morning after a long struggle with cancer.  She is now pain free and in a better place. She will be in our hearts and minds.

    James:
    Nice portrait. It’s when we have a chance to give our talent to some like this that we know the value of what we do. In today’s society it is not always appreciated by the general public but what you do has value and meaning, for you, for your mom, and for Joan’s family.
    Thanks for sharing and I am sorry for your loss.
    John

    James, look forward to your daily posts. Especially fond of how you kill off assistants, and jump on beds, your humor, and now your sensitivity. Thanks for sharing your gifts daily. d
