It Was a Moment

1-Buck and BethThere were a lot of wonderful bonuses when Elaine and Neal came to visit us a few weeks ago. Their warmth, sense of humor, commitment to family, and generosity of spirit spring immediately to mind.

Neal took this candid shot of Buck and me on the Sunday morning when they were packed up and ready to drive back to their home in Gainesville. Our granddaughter, (and Elaine’s great-niece), April, a star keeper for the Lady Tigers soccer team at Pensacola High, in her senior year, had joined us for a late breakfast.

I love this picture. We’re not all gussied up for the camera. I had just walked up behind Buck while he sat on a kitchen bar stool and draped around him. Camera in hand, Neal said “Don’t move.” I guess he saw what I see: two folks, not young, just about to celebrate their 29th anniversary, and more in love than ever.

It was a moment, and I’m grateful to Neal for capturing it.

  1. When you two were first married and we saw a photo of you together, Gini remarked: “They have each other’s names stamped on their foreheads.” Nothing has changed since then. The very definition of “soul mates”.

    Love ya!
