Pictures on Mantles

And long after this life’s over
Love will shine on
In pictures on mantles
Eternal candles
Sparks that rekindle yesterday

These are a few lyrics from Trace Adkins’s song “Pictures on Mantles.”  The came to mind this weekend as the family laid Uncle Daniel Lumbreraz to rest after a 10-month-battle with cancer.  Below is a photo that I created on Mother’s Day 2012.  As most people know, cancer is a disease that will ravage a body.  The photo is the way I prefer to remember Daniel.  We’ll miss him but we’ll definitely not forget him.
