Kitty Ethridge: Gene's Sister Arrives


Gene's Sister Arrives at His Birthday Party ©2012 Kitty Ethridge
   Not too long ago I had the pleasure of photographing a very special gentleman, Gene C.  It was his 90th birthday and the room was full of family and friends who had come to celebrate his life.  Clearly they all adored him.  This is a very loving family and a great amount of credit for this is due to Gene. All of them were unafraid to show emotion and affection for each another.  Gene himself led them in this regard. The last person to arrive at the party was his youngest sister.  He wasn't expecting her and so was very surprised to see her come in through the door.

 It was the most poignant moment of the night.  Briefly she recognized him.  As she got closer to him her face lit up.  For a few minutes she was able to leave the yesterdays behind that are currently her realty and be in the present.  At least it seemed that way for the older brother she loved so much.
