Dedicated to our friend Charlie - RIP

Our dear friend Charlie Richards passed away yesterday unexpectedly.
He is very special to our family.
He was a photographer/truck driver until he had a heart attack several years ago.
He had not picked up a camera since that happened.
He had some beautiful photo's in his apartment that he had taken a long time ago.
 I had always told him that some day I wanted him to take pictures of me.
Well, two weeks ago we had our photo shoot.
Below are some of the beautiful photos that he took.

This was so much fun.
I told him that this was one of my top 10 nights ever.
I'm so glad I decided to do it when I did.
I will never forget that night.
He did tell me
 "he never thought he would ever pick up a camera again,
 and he had just as much fun if not more at the photo shoot as I did."

He played Uncle Sam every year in many Veterns Day parades and also on the 4th of July.
He was truly proud to be an American.

I feel blessed to have had so many years with Charlie in our lives.
I will never forget you.
Love you T
