On the 10 year anniversary of this tragedy Jeff felt that it was time to let go of his box of
memories. He contacted me and asked me if I could create something from his collection
of letters and cards and remnants from the tragedy. I was honored to have been asked and
accepted the task.
Jeff handed me a large box full of letters; notes between the couple during college, cards of
encouragement for new jobs, the announcement about their engagement, articles about
9/11, the missing person flyers, and then an abundance of condolences
cards, from friends, family, coworkers, communities and even strangers. These
communiques played a huge role is Jeff's recovery; the power of a caring community.
When Jeff approached me, he didn't want a memorial of his fiancée and her death. He
wanted a sculpture that would portray the importance of community, and the positive
growth that can come through adversity, as well as a celebration of Amy's spirit. The
essence of this dress is similar to the story of the phoenix, who rises from the ashes
renewed after apparent disaster or destruction.”
There will be live music provided by a wonderful jazz trio and The
Dorrance will be serving brunch for those who would like to stay and have
an incredible meal.
There will also be plenty of helpful guidance and suggestions to enhance
your passion for artful photography.
