Family Slideshow from Memorial Service

First of all, thank you to everyone's prayers and support during this difficult time. So many of you have been so generous in helping out the family in various ways and we all appreciate it.





Last Friday we held the Memorial Service for my Father, Robert Poon. We made the service into a celebration and my favorite moment was when we showed the following slide show with memories from Robert's life. In case you missed it or want to look through it again, here it is :)

Not Only Am I The President......I'm Also A Member

Remember those cheesy commercials where the guy says that he's not only the President, but he's also a member?  Well, I guess I can kind of say that myself now.  As some of you know, over the past several months I've been visiting home to spend time with my family because my Father, Robert, had cancer.  I put together an album that I was wanting to surprise everyone with but unfortunately my Father passed away this past Friday.  God has been so good to us with timing and provided me with means to come up to visit and take some photos while Robert was doing quite well.

A couple months ago I wrote a blog post about why photography is so important to me.  I never thought that it would be so soon that I would be cherishing all the photos we have of our family and of my Dad.  Earlier today, I was thinking about how my future wife and kids will never meet my Dad except through photos.  We're all lucky that my passion for photography runs in the family and we have lots of photos with my Dad. 

I'm not sure how coherent any of these thoughts are so let's just get to the pictures :)







Before I forget, I want to thank KISS Wedding Books and Pixel2Canvas so much for their generosity and support during this time.  They have helped expedite the creation and delivery of some family albums and canvas prints for us to show at Robert's Memorial Celebration.  And thank you to everyone else who has come alongside us, supported us, and loved us.
