In Memory

Ernest Walker, my first father-in-law. I just received word from my first husband that he died last Friday. I never lost my bond with my first in-laws. Denise, his wife, died a few years earlier. Rest in peace, Ernie.

Very nice tribute, Pris. I'm sorry for your loss.

Hi Michael
He was a fine man, with the courtly manners of another era. He also was one of the finest photographers I've known. I'll miss his yearly Christmas cards, made from one of his latest scenic photographs, with a personal note scrawled across the back.
