There’s nothing like photos to help keep memories afloat. With time and age, the memory does funny things, put a photo is forever. They are wonderful for kicking off a stream of memories and emotions because the photo is a split second in time, and looking at that split second reawakens the moments before and after the photo was taken.

I have been given many photos of Barry in the last two weeks. Friends and family are realising that it is important for me to receive these special gifts and I’m grateful that they have taken the time to go through their photos and share their memories of Barry with me. These photos will be shared here also, in time. Each one shows another moment in Barry’s short life. They make me smile, they make me laugh and they make me cry, but each and every one of them is special.

Thank you to everyone who has shared their photography with me.
