Alfred and I have been friends since high school. He was visiting our neighbor when we ended up talking. We both wrote for our own school’s publication and did illustrations. So technically I got a few tips and tricks from his end. We’d meet up once a year to catch up on stories and when the story was too good to wait, there was always the phone. We fell out of touch a few years after college. I got married and so did he. It wasn’t until a decade or so later that we got in touch via facebook. That’s when we started catching up on each others’ stories again.
This was from a pic I took of him, looking at Jean with adoration in his eyes. 🙂 They’re so beautiful to watch together.
