Tomorrow will be my grand parent's 57th wedding anniversary.
This is a picture of my grandmother's hand w/ that very same wedding ring from 57 years ago.
"I remember when this ring used to fit me better" she remarked while I was setting up for the shot.
"Seeing you, Ben.. The man that you are today, makes it all worth it. The good times and bad".
I'm sitting here with a tear in my eye
I love you both.

Both my grandparents have since passed away. My grandfather passed on Thanksgiving 2003, and my grandmother died a little bit more than a year later.
I still find it comforting to come here and see the comments that get left for this picture on an almost daily basis. It's touched a lot of people in a lot of ways.
I thank you all who enjoy this picture, and for those who are kind enough to leave a message and add it to your favs. You guys and gals make it just a little bit easier for me to think about them, and this picture.
