Sunday I had the privilege of photographing my aunt and her Jim.  They have been together for many years.  It’s tough now though, because Jim has Alzheimer. It amazes me just how dedicated Auntie is to her Jim.

Even though it’s constant, she alone sees to his every need.   Jim is a World War ll Veteran.  He played basketball for Brown University and is the nicest man you would ever want to meet. Auntie is a nurse, a mother of seven,  a first class lady. Her love and devotion to her Jim speaks louder then words – silently teaching how life and love really do matter in a selfish world filled with “choice”.
