August 26, 2009: Most of you probably noticed that I’ve missed my daily photo for Monday and Tuesday. Last Friday I had to head home to Georgia due to some ill news. My Mom had called me on Friday morning to tell me that Papa had died. He had been battling cancer for the past few years, and recently I headed to Georgia to see him in the hospital. He had a seizure and then we found out that the cancer, which at one point had disappeared but was managed, had spread from his lungs to his brain. I stayed a few days, and he was already showing some improvement. He was finally released back home to stay with Nanny. Today, I dedicate my Photo du Jour to him – Benjamin Franklin Booth, my grandfather. He was 69 years old, and would have been married for 51 beautiful years on September 7.
