Thank you! I failed to mention that the cemetery picture I posted was one of the images John Szarkowski purchased for the Museum of Modern Art collection in New York. It was not long after this , that the image was exhibited in a recent acquisitions show. It was a great moment for me , and I snapped a picture of my parents looking at the print on the wall at MOMA.

William, I am also sorry to hear about your loss. Could you post that photo of your parents looking at this print? Just temporarily? I'm sure that was a great moment.
