This morning I saw Kelly’s facebook post:

I can’t believe tomorrow will be 2 years since my mom past away. Although it has been 2 years I speak with her everyday to help guide me in my life and to be an amazing mom just as she was! I love you mom!

“Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, she grew wings and became a butterfly!”

I messaged Kelly and told her i was sorry to hear about her mom.  Patty lost her battle to breast cancer two years ago.

Kelly wrote: ” It was very sudden, she was diagnosed April 15th and passed in 3 short weeks on the 30th. I have you to thank for great recent pictures! I look back on those pictures more than you can imagine and not to mention I have them all over my house! You illustrated her life perfectly that day emotional, genuine, loving, passionate, and happy! I cant thank you enough.

This is one of my favorites because I catch myself wiping my eyes the exact same way and it always makes me think of this picture! – Kelly

i love this song and it makes me think of her when i look at these pictures.

 I am so grateful that i had the opportunity to meet the lovely Patty. She was a very genuine, beautiful, kind and gentle woman.  It feels good knowing that somehow my pictures of her continue to give Kelly and her sister and their family peace and memories of her lovely smile, knowing that heaven gained an angel two years ago.

Rest in peace, Patty. May you live forever young in heaven.

This is why photographs and photographers are important in our lives. They freeze time, space and the love we share with the ones we care about. Now, the really great photographers are a different breed. They actually bring us back to those moments we thought we will never have again. Virgil, this is priceless. Kelly is very lucky to have you as her wedding phorographer and friend.
