|THOMAS SCHOWALTER (1996-2011)|
Today, my husband, Tony Martin, and I are commemorating Thomas's life by posting photographs of our visit with him in 2008, when he was a twelve-year-old boy. Along with his mother Liz and father Steve, who is my brother, we left their home in Oahu, Hawaii, and went with Thomas to the Big Island to hike in volcanic terrain.
Wonderful post, Ruth. Thank you for sharing these photos of a beautiful boy who's life was too short.ReplyDelete
The contrast you set up between his moment in time with you and Tony, and the vastness of the geological time on the island is profound.
I appreciate your sharing in this memorial to Thomas with us.ReplyDelete

Ruth, Thank you for introducing me to my new friend, Thomas.ReplyDelete
In geologic time, 5 years is such a small amount of time to have passed....We hold you present in our lives still Thomas.ReplyDelete
Very moving. The Big Island does seem like a place suspended between two worlds.ReplyDelete
