Last night, my Boss passed away at age 88. He had been suffering with Alzheimer's for a few years. While he was still on the property,(up until the last year and a half)he would go for walks from the house up to the barn/stable to see the horses.Amazingly this man who couldn't remember that his wife was his wife, or my name, always knew which horse was his last riding companion. He had round the clock caretakers who would go with him on this 1/4 mile (each way) walk.Sometimes twice a day. They asked if we could place a bench at about the halfway point so they could stop and rest.
I have found that I go back to this bench often when out shooting. Yesterday's light snow and sunrise called to me and once again I was drawn to the bench. One of my favorites I have taken there. I will always wish I had taken one while he had been sitting there.
I took this about 13 hours before he passed away. Rest in Peace Art.
