Last month, my sister told me that the picture of Dad on my ALS walk site was horrible. I agree, it wasn't his best, but I didn't really have any good ones of him. So I worked with what I had. (Everybody's a critic!) So, my dear sister began her mission of finding a better picture for that site.
She sent me the picture yesterday, but it was compressed with some strange compression software and I couldn't open it. Today, she sent it to me in .jpg format (thanks, Chris!) and I now have the best picture! It's Dad and my brother-in-law, Ed, sitting on a bench somewhere in Florida. It's the best picture for a couple of reasons. First, my Dad loved being in Florida and he looks so relaxed in this picture...it's totally representative of how he was while he was there. Second, I absolutely LOVE that they are sitting almost as if they posed (which I am positive they did not!). Third, I don't have many pictures of my brother-in-law, and this is a great picture of him! Finally, I think this is one of the last pictures taken of Dad before he lost all the weight and was diagnosed.
Thanks for the picture, Chris! I promise I will post it on my ALS walk page for next year's walk!
