Photographs are the images of memory and their emotional, and sometimes even their monetary, value increases with the passage of time.

Please see more pictures and read the remainder of this wonderful article  here.

A gripping line by Mr. Riper is printed by the photograph above: “Photographs are the images of memory and their emotional ….value increases with time.” This line succinctly, but with passion, encompasses much of the appeal and value of photography. Grab your camera today and record an “image of memory!” Isn’t that the greatest phrase.

Still full of life and ready to be on the move, Shirley at 81 years old feels blessed to have lots of energy and to be full of optimism. She was married to Jerry for 64 years, and grieves yet at his death in August of 2019. They have 4 children, 13 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren...all beautiful and highly intelligent--of course. :)
