Dear Photograph,

My grandparents sitting there, smiling back at the camera long ago, on the old dock of their cottage they had bought back in 1949. We enjoyed over sixty years of summer together at Deep Creek Lake, Maryland. They have both passed since then, and so I wanted to take one last picture of them enjoying the summer once again before we put the cottage up for sale yesterday. As A. A. Milne once said, “How lucky I am, to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.”
