Just moments after i took this shot my sister called me to tell me that my brother had passed away suddenly. i stood on the beach as the sunset to try and process the news. it’s been a few days since the call and we are all grieving. he had his struggles and had been fighting many demons for so many years. he was always looking for hope. the last few months he was very happy and seemed to have had a turn. he has been calling me and texting me sharing how much he just wanted to come over for coffee. we were able to spend christmas at our house and for the first time in 17 years our whole family was together. we laughed and told stories of when we were kids. it was a beautiful memory and i am so glad that one of my final encounters with him was filled with so much love. he texted me just before this trip and said that he would like to see a movie when we got back. i told him i would be his loyal movie buddy. love you kelly. you are home now and at peace. you finally found your light.
