    p.s. sorry for the dark picture & sideways view. Bad lighting and light background didn’t show up either. Need that lightbox I’ve been wishing for. :-)

    This is beautiful and the meaning behind it makes it even more so. I knew a girl in high school whose father was shot down in Vietnam and never found. That has so hard.
