I'll hold my son a little tighter tonight as I think of your son.

I can't imagine the pain you must be going through.

Thank you for all your kind thoughts and words.

I'm heading quickly towards being 64...like most, I carry a certain amount of aches and pains from an active life that are the results from accidents and/or failure of various body parts. This is one more ache I'll always carry, one I hoped I'd never have. But it is only an ache because of the love and wonder of Calder, so I will gladly bear it even through tears.

Thank you, again.

Vaughn, you have just a few years on me. I won't be so bold as to offer advice other than to say, we all can control some things in our lives... others we simply cannot. We go through many painful things in our lives. Letting go is certainly the most painful. But it must be done because we have no other choice. Remember the good times. Don't dwell on sad times.

Vaughn, my deepest condolences to you and your family. I recall seeing an exhibit of yours a few years ago, or perhaps some separate images from around the same time as that exhibit, with what I suspected were your children among the towering trees. I remember thinking aloud what a wonderful and fortunate family image it was. I wish you great strength in keeping the best of your son and your times together in your heart and mind. My thoughts are with you.

He was not a member here, but he appeared in a few of my images. He committed suicide a month ago. Twenty years is far to short of a life, but for him it got to be too long. Rest in peace.

He and his brothers were/are my muse. I had all three boys together briefly this summer -- too brief for a photo together...I thought I would have more time, another chance. I just spent 3 weeks in Japan with Alex, and Bryce is traveling in Central America for another week. I will have both boys together briefly on the 15th in Berkeley. I'll take their photo.

Vaugn,

My heart breaks for your loss. May you and your entire family find some semblance of peace. Your son would want that for you.

Please be a rock of strength for all your family.

You have my sympathy.

Vaughn. I'm so sorry to hear this. Nothing said can replace the void you have in your heart. I hope that, knowing others are keeping you and your family in their thought's, will help to ease your pain, even if it's only for a minute or two.

We'll be here for you whenever needed
