Elliott looks like he's being a brat here. Or maybe he went to the bathroom and wanted to be changed but no one knew about it yet :)

Uma (mom) looks beautiful here doesn't she? That's such a sweet smile. Lorainne looks embarrassed, and Kitty looks like she's saying... "Alright!" Maybe Uma just told her she could have some toy or something.

There's Dad with a perfect build. And granddad, I think the 1st pic I ever saw of him. Looks like a hard working man.

I think we all actually smiled honestly in this pic. Amazing. Well actually Laura usually smiles nicely in her pics, but Elliott like to make goofy faces, and me, I just look mad or something. Doesn't Elliott look awesome here?

I gotta agree...we all look pretty darn good here. : ) We had this pic done for Daddy for Fathers Day in 1994. I'm so glad we did this for him. It wasn't easy bullying Nelson & El into goin to the photographer's & then actually relaxing enough to take a nice natural pic. : ) This came out just perfect, all of us w/ a true smile on our faces. We love you Daddy.

I should have sent more pics of Jeremy to Dad. This was one of the first, when Jeremy was about 1. Look at that fat head! Kinda reminds me of Ryan when he was younger :) . But so adorable.

Dad looks bigger than usual here. Maybe he just got done with a few months of extra long workouts

I'll never forget our last Christmas together as a family....Daddy always taught us to work hard for what you have, material things do not matter. So that Christmas, Daddy had all of us make/build/create something for each other as gifts, rather than buying them. At 1st, we thought this was a dumb idea of course. But then we began to imagine, to invision, to create. We worked so hard, paid attention to every detail. WOW we made some beautiful gifts, things that could never be replaced. And we were together, a family. As a kid, it's hard to understand the values that your parents are trying to teach you. As an adult, you realize how much these lessons have formed you as a person. And you can finally appreciate them. That Christmas will always be one of my favorite memories EVER.

Another great shot by Elliott and his camera. He caught Dad with a really interesting look. You can almost see in his eyes that he will not take shit from you. You can see the strength in him, and not just because he has a serious expression. It's deeper than that.

Going to Grouse Mountain in Vancouver as a kid, going up the tram and looking down at the city. The pen he gave me when I was about 9, that had purple ink and the ink was also perfumed!! I LOVED it and wrote him letters with it until it ran out. Also, going to see him in Sumas with my dogs and us watching Turner Classic Movies for hours, while drinking coffee and eating something chocolate of course, and trying to breath in the smoke.

This was in Sumas, at the B&B Motel. I took this picture just before I went home. We had some good times there.

Dad was in such great shape. This was in Dupont, WA at a guard shack. I came to work alot with him here. On the night shift he would drive around and check each check point to see if all okay. It got pretty spooky in some of the areas. Lots of wooded areas and sometimes we would hear scary animal noises. That was fun.

Hi Daddy, I wish I took the time to have gotten to know you, but I concentrated on being too unhappy with my life. I am so sorry!! I love you Daddy!!

Dad does look great here, and Kitty, he knows you loved him. We all could have known him a little better I think, but you can't change the past. Never live in the past. We were the best part of his life.

This is George when he was in the Navy. Wasn't he exceedingly handsome? I, his ex-wife Louise, is the italian immigrant he was referring to.

He looked like he was trying to look tough here, but probably to my mother or Kitty. If I had taken it, he would have looked meaner and tougher. He just has that loving look on his face, like he was saying something like.. "Yeah, I'll fight anyone, but baby, I'm not in the fighting mood right now."

This photo is what he always wanted, for the family to be together all of us. This was taken last month at his son's Nelson's house with all of us there to be with him in his last days. We all love you.

He looks like he was having a busy day at work here. I think if Kitty didn't stay with him those years in Washington, he would have had such a hard time thinking of how we all were, being so far from his kids. You living with him Kitty, and Susan being not too far away are what made him happy during this time. Life isn't easy for a teenager growing up in the middle of nowhere, not knowing many people or having much to do. I'm sure he understood this. It must have been hard. But he sure loved you Kitty.
