As I was searching my photo albums, I realized that I don't have a lot of photos of my grand father. So I realize more today ... that it's soo important to take photos of the ones you love..... and take photos of yourself for those you love! So on that note, I pack my bags and my camera for Grand Falls and a Funeral.
