    "Tears were plentiful....."

    And from my eyes as well. A moving story, Nicole, and an affirmation of the worthiness of your work.

    Nick-nick - I think your photographic talent is only outstripped by your amazing compassion and grace.

    Thank you, Nicole, for sharing that with us. I can't even put into words how that story has touched me --- so tragic ! I have been a fan of your work for some time and I'm getting an idea of where your genuine gift comes from--your heart !!

    Most of us use our hands to work the camera. You use your heart. Bravo.

    Wow, Nicole!!
    I salute you in your endeavors of those images of dying loved ones. I have been in that particular position, when my beloved Mom died 2 decades ago; I certainly would have loved "capturing" those last memories of her.

    How are you doing, now in your own recovery? I hope very well!
