Valentines Day Memories

By LynneJoyce  
Today is the 24th anniversary of my marriage to Garrath in Las Vegas. Having lost Garrath to cancer in August 2017 today is naturally a day for revisiting the memories that we made together so this post is all about those memories. Many are happy memories, some are very sad ones but all are important. Some of these photos are not of the highest quality but the memories that go with them are. I have presented them in chronological order.

Photographs serve many purposes but none can be more important that capturing memories. Here I urge you to take plenty of photographs of those closest to you. They will help you relive the memories you share and this is particularly important if you lose your loved one.

You will note from the dates on these images that I didn't take nearly enough photos of Garrath, partly because he hated having his photo taken, partly because I don't do people much. Version 8 doesn't feature Garrath but shows me in the middle of my sky dive, and event that Garrath described as pure madness but one that he encouraged and supported.

Thank you for viewing and I hope that you enjoy sharing some of these memories with me.

Firstly, may I say what an absolutely delightful and elegant bride your were, Lynne.
Garrath obviously had good taste and also enjoyed life through a lens.
Such a happy, fun loving person comes through in these photo memories of him, Lynne, and as a couple too.

And a very BIG thank you for your mod today, showing that in photoshop, even a broken heart can be mended.

My very best wishes,

I can share your view on the importance of memories Lynne - a wonderful set full of personal moments in your life and as I can testify too so important to be able to look back and remember the things we did with our lost ones.
V11 is wonderful with the reflection as are all your reflections here.
Well done on your skydive!
Wonderful set

As mentioned on FB, a fine set of images to remember Garrath by - even more here for us to enjoy, thanks for sharing these with us Lynne. I have just a few images from our holiday in Venice back in 2012 when we were there for the Carnival which include Garrath, and shall email them to you a bit later. Not the best images, but some that you can add to your collection 👍

Light the corners of my mind.
Misty water-colored memories.
Of the way we were.
Scattered pictures.
Of the smiles we left behind.
Smiles we gave to one another.

The lyrics from that wonderful song came to my mind, enjoy your memories.

Keeping memories....I cant agree with you more Lynne!
I so wish I had took more photos of lost family before it was too late.
Now I take loads, they are very precious!
Best wishes to you!
