From top to bottom: me, my mom and my sister.
My parents divorced when I was 4, my sister was 2, but they always got along. I’m not sure why, but we went to Darien Lake theme park in early fall 2004. We stayed in a hotel and had to leave before the park opened.
We stopped by this park to kill some time.
I love this picture because my dad took it. When I see it I think about how he saw us though the camera. I have lots of pictures from that day, lots of memories.
My dad died not long after this, in November 2004.
It was sudden, no warning. A car/motorcycle collision a few miles from my house. It’s strange to think back to that day, we were so happy, and how it all changed a few weeks later.
