My Dad passed away on June 6th of last year…it might have been a few minutes into June 7th. I’m a little fuzzy on that. I remember I was doing a photo shoot with Elaine & Chris when I got a call from Judy saying they were going to move Dad into Capital Hospice. He was having a hard time breathing. I felt numb and didn’t really know what to do. I felt so far away. I was about 100 yards from the ocean and a million miles away from my family. But I just kept going on with the shoot. There was really nothing I could do. I guess I could have stopped right there and gone and hopped on a flight to Dulles but I didn’t. I don’t know why. It would not have made a difference. I had said my goodbyes to him a week or so before. His last words were “I have my cell”. That was awesome! Judy was with Dad when he took his last breath.
