In the summer of 2007 my brother Bob, who is in the background of this image, announced to us that he was diagnosed with lung and brain cancer two days before this picture was taken. A group of us went to the shore for the day just to spend some time together before he and his wife flew back to Seattle. His best friend was saying goodbye to Bob’s wife Lennis and I just happen to catch the moment. Bob lost his battle in November of 2009. This image has been on thier mantle since the week after that day at the beach.
