2013 Jennifer Ziegler


Unbroken Collection Biggie

A layout for my brother, Joel, who died in 2007 at age 20. Journaling reads:

Here is one of the first and the very last photo I ever took of you. Those were definitely happier times.

So much has changed since you left us. You should see your nieces and your nephew. They are filled with so much joy and I see pieces of you in them from time to time. Not a day goes by when I don't think of you -- something funny I want to tell you, the way you used to laugh with your whole body, your mischievous smile and your sharp mind and wit.

Your death nearly destroyed me. Sometimes I still cannot believe it. But hard as it is to deal with, I will not stop living just because you did. I am a survivor.

    I so love this collection and the layout Jennifer. So quiet, yet so powerful!
    I agree, I feel like there is a lot of power in the calm of this collection. So sad, but also resilient and strong. Just a lovely layout.
    you know how much I love this layout... and, sadly, how much I know your pain. beautiful collection Jen
    Such a beautiful collection and page, Jennifer! I have a younger brother and can't imagine what you and your family have gone through. I love that you were able to created something so wonderful to honor Joel and that will touch many people. I know it moved me! Hugs
