Artist's Statement:
All memories are golden.

The happy, the not so happy. . . all memories are good.

It reminds us of where we were. Growth, mistakes, triumphs, challenges, rewards, beauty, the past and its memories are to be cherished.

They are golden. They are gifts. They are treasures.

Some day for some people, these golden memories will be all that remains . . . but if you look closely, look deeply, look past the loss, look past the pain, look with the heart, you'll see that those golden memories are filled with evidence, evidence of family, evidence of friendship, evidence of deep, eternal love.

Yes, golden memories.
