the lady that runs this christmas tree lot was so excited that i was there photographing it. she told me that it had been run by her brother. it had been his dream to run a tree lot and the year after he started it, he suddenly died of a heart attack.
she told me that it was her honor to have been able to continue selling christmas trees in memory of him.
i told her that we'd be back to buy a christmas tree when we were ready to buy one.
and now when i look at our christmas tree, i think of him as well.
