My sons Neal and Gordon were about as close as brothers could be. They were only 10 months apart in age, shared a bedroom, and had gone through the grades together. They were like a comedy team, playing off each other and lighting up our whole house with laughter. Neal’s death by suicide last March was devastating to all of us, but especially to Gordon. He’s bereft without his brother – there’s a hole in his life that will never be filled. This picture is my attempt to visually capture something of the magnitude of that loss.
