Goodbye, Mr. Brown

Today, my baby dog, Jackson, went to Heaven.  And honestly, I really don’t care whether you believe or if you don’t believe that dogs go to Heaven.  I KNOW they do.  The reason I know this is because I spent 12 of Jackson’s 13 years with him.  I saw how he treated me and loved…

How do you say goodbye?

It’s been a long year. For many reasons. But the main reason being with my friend, Jannetta, during her fight with cancer. She lost that fight on January 27th. Even as I type these words they are so hard to comprehend. I’ve been friends with Jane for 9 years and have been their family photographer…
