It's Great to have Friends!

I have to thank Susan Powers, really just a huge heart warming Thank you!!!

Grandpa Joe passed away last week, it has been such a sad time for us. But he'd been sick for a bit. So, when we found out that Grandpa Joe was in Hospice and it was imminent that time was extremely short, John (my husband) and I started to gather some of the old photographs that we have.

Well Susan had invited me over for lunch and asked that I bring the photographs... I did. This way we'd have some nice images to display at the services. I took these images and others from the 40's, 50s, 60s, allll the way to the present and made a collage, it was a big hit! Everyone loved looking at those old pictures! It was a great way to remember what a fun and charming man Joe was!

And I'd like to show you the before and after's.

Notice how Grandpa looks much smoother and I don't have dark circles under my eyes! And she zoomed in on the image so that we were front, and the back round isn't as dark. Gosh, she's a magician!

This is my favorite picture! It was taken about 7 years ago, and he just looks so happy! I love his smile, it just warms you through and through! She brought more light to Peggy, and softened up Grandpa, got rid of a sore above his mouth, and best of all, he still looks like himself!

Thank you Susan for helping me create photographs that will be with the family forever!
