Artist's Description

i layed you here to rest for all eternity
on the island you loved so very much, maui
here you built us a home with all the love in your heart and soul
from your labor, your sweat and your hands
so you could bring your family home
unfortunately an auto accident changed the course of your life forever
keeping you from your dreams, and being able to provide for your family

but i am proud of you daddy
and you always knew that~
because of your love~ i learned to love that way too
i could see beyond your pain,
beyond your hurt and
remember you in everything that was good and light
so you could strive ever harder to hold onto that as well

here is where i was able to lay you to rest
after you left this world~ for your heavenly home on father’s day
to be again joined with your scotty boy we lost just 5 years earlier
i love you both, please help me to hold onto your heart
so that my children will know~ and their children will too….

at the time this photo was taken in 2003
i think i was shooting with disposable film…
this is a scan of an old photo~ and then painted with love
