My friend Troy Smith died of cancer a few years ago. I wrote a series of poems for the family, in his memory, and in reflection on the photos he took, and shared with me, while the family was on a trip sponsored by his church friends, and the good folks of Spain Park High School. The first is one I wrote upon pondering photos of Troy and his kids, and how he filled different roles and images with each.
A friend in Portland, OR, who was instrumental in arranging the trip they took, organized the photos and sent me the following, which was subsequently printed for the Smith family.
The print on the photo may be a bit difficult to read, but if you'll click on the photo itself, it'll enlarge to an easily readable size.
