However, as many of you know I’ve been writing a memoir about what happened with our daughter and how we lost her. In the story I’m including some very special pictures that were taken by a very special man who has a big heart. His name is Todd Hochberg. He is a professional photographer who gives of his time to those parents who have to say permanently goodbye to their child. What he does for the parents is considered priceless to them.
I called him today to ask permission if I may use the pictures he took from her last day and put them in the book I wrote. He has said yes. He is even sending me a CD with all the pictures on them. All I can say is I feel blessed that God put this man in our lives. He photo documented every last moment we had with Mari and he did it all with having us pose for a single picture. I was important to be organic to the situation because of how serious it was with losing Mari. The way he did it was truly special. I know I will forever be grateful for these pictures.
