Four Photos, a Marriage, and a Funeral

The four portraits here of my wife Anne and I were taken by Anne's good friend Astrid le Mintier de la Motte Basse, who passed away two years ago after a long struggle against cancer. The child in the last photo is Astrid's daughter who was about two at the time. Sorry for the quality of these images, they were scanned from small, glossy prints... did the best I could. These were taken shortly after we got married, and all I can say now is, after 16 years of marriage, I wouldn't trade a day of it, and everything I do, including working on this blog, is made possible by the tender loving care Anne shows me in a hundred small ways every day. And she makes darn good foie gras and fresh bread too, which is more than enough cause for any man to love a woman, as far as I'm concerned...
