In memory of Dadd
my dad died a year ago, january 30th. i recently found this picture of his hands. i dont know why my mom took it, she rarely takes pictures. but this picture is so my dad. i can see and hear him trying to explain something and using his hands. i am matting and framing a copy for each of my 4 sisters. i hope it brings them joy at the memories and not sadness for the loss. at any rate i am also sending along in the boxes a package of tissue that says "she who laughs, lasts." and yes, dadd is correct, that was always how he signed things.
