In Memoriam

After a 4 month long battle with complications from cancer treatment she received last year my Mother passed away peacefully yesterday January 26 2020 at 10am in the morning. I am convinced that she is now rejoicing with God in heaven.

The first picture is from Christmas time at The White House 2001. Security was tight that year because of 9/11 but with the help of the woman I was dating at that time who is a secret service photographer we pulled this off and got Dad and Mom in The White House for a Christmas tour. It was one of the happiest moments of their lives. The 2nd image is a portrait I did of Mom in 2006.

History Uncovered

The owner of this property near Luray Virginia gave me permission to photograph the house and surrounding out buildings and cemeteries. I was upstairs in the house and found this wooden crate with beautiful writing on it.

It reads top to bottom


F W Berry

Luray Virginia

F W Berry had a hardware store in downtown Luray Virginia in 1885.

I carried the wooden crate out to get this photo showing the house in the background for perspective.

The crate has been given to the current owners of the property.
