Sharon's Memorial

Sharon’s memorial was today at South Beach, one of her favorite places. The rain did not deter a pretty good sized crowd from showing up. Click on the photo if you would like to see a few more images. This poem was read at the end of the service and I really liked it so I thought I’d share it with you:

When I die, if you need to weep
Cry for your brother or sister walking the street beside you

And when you need me, put your arms around anyone
And give them what you need to give to me

I want to leave you something
Something better than words or sounds

Look for me in the people I’ve known and loved
And if you cannot give me away
At least let me live in your eyes and not on your mind

You can love me most by letting hands touch hands
By letting hearts touch hearts
And by letting go of children that need to be free

Love doesn’t die
So when all that’s left of me is love
Give me away

Rock 'n' Roll

Or is it Metal? Or is it Death-Metal? Whatever – it’s fun and high energy. And it’s fun to shoot portraits like this with red gels on the strobes. Here’s TJ, once again a victim willing participant for when I want to get out my photo gear and try out some things.
