Papa-Joe married my Mother. It was hard for me to accept, but I could see that he was a steady companion for her.

The last moment Grampa Hinkle had with our family. Boarding the train in Jasper after he invited us for a ski trip in Canmore. Please 'click to enlarge' to see him in this photo.

I asked a friend to take my portrait just before the funeral began.

It was all a blur.

Yet, I wanted to remember.
