Ken was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s disease in 2010. We met Ken and his wife, their three children and four grandchildren at their long time family home, shortly after it was put up for sale due to Ken’s disease progression. Being able to document a family at a sentimental location is always an exceptional honor for us.
Two summers ago a very special gift was given to me. I was preparing to move from my home of 17 years because my husband had been diagnosed with a terminal illness. I knew we could no longer look after our home. Heather knew how important it was to have photographs taken of the family at the home before the move occurred. Many photographs that Heather took are displayed in my new home and bring me joy every day. My husband has since gone into Long Term Care, my grandchildren are older but these photographs remind me daily of the happy and healthy times we had there. This is a gift that brings conversation and reflection every day. Thank you Heather. – Janet (Ken’s Wife)
