This is pretty much my first page for 2012, even though the photo is much older because the journaling is relevant to now.
I have a slew of photos of my Uncle Steve, who unexpectedly passed away in October of 2007, only a couple of months after my youngest was born. It's still hard to believe he's gone, even 4 years later. At Christmas, I still expect to see him walk into my Grandparent's house on Christmas morning. I still look for his arrival at family gatherings. His loss is still felt immensely through our entire family and I felt like it needed to be put to paper.
