A man and his sons
Can you see the happiness in this man's face and his sense of good fortune for having such handsome sons? This is among my favorite photos of him; from a time before I was born and a time that I imagine to have been among his most contented.
As fate would have it, he lost his eldest son Neil, the freckle-faced redhead on the left and another son, Stephen, before I was even born. Two brothers I claim but never knew.
I wonder about whether he was a different father before the loss of two of his sons. I'd guess he was and think this photo must give a hint of the man he was before.
