A dear family member passed away last Sunday after battling cancer for more than a decade. Laura Kathleen Padilla was an amazing woman who made a tremendous impact on the world in her brief 39 years on this earth. Though she has departed, she now shares eternity with our beloved relatives who left before us; her view of our home town must be the stuff of our dreams. It is with this in mind that I humbly submit some of the photos that I created while I was home in New Mexico for her funeral. The trip home was sad, but visiting with my wonderful family reminded me of what a beautiful place the world is.
Laura, I love you and miss you. These photos were made with you on my mind.
