My relationship with a cemetery began when I was a little girl. Every decoration day my sister and I would run to the top of the mountain in West Virginia to see our Dad. His monument has a photograph of him on it and that's how we knew him. I have been a photographer in the military, as well as with a New York firm and even though I moved on to other occupations, I have always loved photography. I believe that it is very important to know our history and to respect those that have stepped into eternity. In those graves rest moms, dads, sons, daughters, uncles, aunts, grandparents, someone that is important to somebody.
