A sad family

dad and me

We have a very sad family right now. My dad passed away at the age of 83. He’s going to be very missed, my girls adored him. He was teaching Emma to speak Spanish (as he was born in Mexico) and Charlotte loved making him read story after story to her. He had been battling cancer for the last year, but his death was still a surprise to all who loved him – he was a spry 83 who still worked 3 days a week playing the piano at a cafe, and drove himself to his own chemo appointments.

He lived a pretty full life, starting out as a musician and ending up to be a well-respected make-up artist working on such films as the Journey of Natty Gann and television series like North of 60.
He even had his own IMDB page:

I realize there are some anxious clients waiting to see galleries and I assure you that everyone will get their images in time for the holidays. I just need some time with my family in the next week to try to deal with our loss and to make final preparations for him. I truly appreciate your understanding and will be back at work as soon as possible.

Thanks and much love,
