Mickey Raine sent in the following, lovely tribute to his wife Elaine’s Aunt Rose:
I had driven over to DeKorte Park very early this morning, hoping to capture some pre-sunrise and sunrise hour scenes. We had just learned about the passing of Elaine’s Aunt Rose in San Jose, California, and I, too, felt her to be a truly special lady–an infinitely devoted mother, grandmother, wife and sister.
She always seemed to be of great spirits, in spite of her personal conditions, much like our dear friend Tricia, who had just passed away. Elaine had just had one of her long and fun chats with Rose no more than two weeks ago.
This may sound corny, but sunset and sunrise landscape viewings can be deep solace for the soul, while also, quite inspirational.
