Very brave entry. Last summer I watched with the family of a very dear friend in her last hours. This brings it back and the avoidance we have of recognizing dying as a significant and intense personal process.

This is probably a very important image for you to have but I keep wondering if he would have wanted the photo of him dying to be in a challenge. Sorry if I'm being too narrow-minded... seeing him lying there helpless makes me so sad...

Very emotional image - I hope when he passes that it is peaceful and free of pain.

This so powerful....emotional....and very well done. I know this is a very personal photo, but it shows the face of many peoples loved ones. I wish I had taken a photo like that 15 yrs ago, but I see it again through your eyes!

May peace be with your grandfather/father/brother/uncle and/or friend.
