    This past weekend my entire family, 4 uncles, 1aunt, and my mom converged in the city of Tucson, AZ because my grandfather, their father, was very sick in the hospital with pneumonia. We knew he wasn't going to make it long, as they only gave him a less than 1% chance of making it.

    These photos were taken about a half an hour after my grandfather had passed.

    This is Thomas. One of the twin boys.

    Patricia. Second oldest daughter. She took care of Pop for the last few years on her own. She is the only other family member living in Tucson.

    The Four Boys. Thomas, James, Kenneth, and Michael. First time together in about 8 years.

    Hard time, but very worth it. Very peaceful.

    Cheers to you pop.....let's have a beer.

    The textures on the skin and clothing are beautiful. What kind of filter was used to achieve this coloration?

    My condolences.

    Loving the angles, but tones are weak! #1, the subject doesn't seem to be in focus.

    My condolences!

    Number 1 is fantastic, has a certain kind of feel to it that I cant put my finger on.
