Photo-A-Day #2177

Today we lost a wonderful family member. Allison’s Grandpa John passed away today. He passed quietly and peacefully surrounded by family members. Allison and Eva were able to be there with Grandpa John in his final moments. We are sad to lose Grandpa John but know that he is now at peace. We talked to Eva about Heaven. We explained that Grandpa John was going to Heaven and we’re very up front with Eva. While she was sad we didn’t want to lie to her that he was sleeping or something like that. She is taking it okay.

Because Allison has taken Eva with her to the nursing home downtown ever since she was a baby, Eva has no discomfort around people who are on oxygen or who are sick or in bed. She’s very comfortable with everyone in a nursing home. The kid has a huge heart. She loved Grandpa John so much and he loved her so. We all loved him and are sad to see him go.

What is Drew Shooting with?
Model: NIKON D80
ISO: 400
Exposure: 1/60 sec
Aperture: N/A

This is my own personal DSLR camera that I bought half of. My mother-In-Law bought the other half as an investment of great photos of her grandchildren. With over 26,000 photos of Eva and counting, I’d say she got great ROI on the investment. The opinions about them are 100% mine.

How Does Drew Protect His Photos?

Interface USB 2.0 or 3.0

Disclosure: I received a number of Seagate devices including the Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex 1 TB USB 2.0 Ultra-Portable External Hard Drive, GoFlex Home, GoFlex TV and GoFlex Net. I’ll be talking about these devices in the coming months. The opinions about the devices are 100% mine.

    I think kids can understand way more than we give them credit for and they have such a boundless compassion. Sorry for your loss, it sounds like Grandpa John was well loved and will be remembered well.

    Good you told the truth to Eva. Here in India, people are used to telling lies to kids.
