She's so smart, Jenny. You'd be so proud of her. I am. She, uh, wrote a letter, and she says I can't read it. I'm not supposed to, so I'll just leave it here for you.

Whenever I have a personally moving and meaningful moment, my first reaction is to put it on the internet too. That way, even though I am sad, I can at least be internet famous for a second.

That's a sad story, but that's an awesome house!  Love the hardwood floors and the pocket doors.  I bet there's an epic front porch on that house.

I have a daughter that age. Mom's away on business this week and she keeps waking up in the middle of the night and asking me "Mommy's still at work, right?"

If I understand the situation correctly, getting tail is the last thing from this guys mind. He wants his daughter to remember her Mom.

So where's the side by side photo of the baby girl running through house with her poop filled diaper in her hand and the one as a teenage girl stumbling in to the house on her first drunk with her underwear in her hands?

I agree. I don't care about your personal tragedy, dude, but good choice on the facial hair.

Sad and everything, but question - first page has this:

When Ben Nunery and his wife Ali got married in 2009, they had just closed on their new house, so they took the opportunity to take their wedding photos in the empty home.
Just four and a half years later, after Ali's tragic death from cancer at at the age of 31 in 2011...


Assuming Jan1, 2009 and December31, 2011 - that's still 1 day shy of 3 years.  That isn't "four and a half years"

Meh, I'm a bad person for pointing this out.

Dammit subby you don't even know me.  Why would you come up to me and throw dust in my face like that?  I wasn't even done with my 2nd cup of coffee yet.

If you offered me enough money to pay off the US debt in exchange for lobotomizing one memory of the time I got to spend with my dad, you'd get no deal without a second thought.

You may think you like money, but then why do you always put as far away from you as possible?  If you get some, you don't hold it and enjoy it. You turn it into a representative number in a bank account.  Add up your entire net worth.  Now add up all the cash you have on hand.  Currently I have much less than a fraction of a percent of my available cash on hand. And I don't miss any of it in the least.  Have you ever had $10,000 in your hands?  Have you ever had $100,000 in them?  I can't say that I ever have. Not in cash.

That's a complete misuse of opportunity. Chicks are drawn to cute kids like they are to dogs in the park. My 3 year old great niece likes to ask her uncle to take her to the park by saying, "Come on, let me find some nice girls for you to date."

I assume they mean "four and half years..." AFTER the wedding, not mom's death.

Thy indicate that it was his sister-in-law, late wife's sister, is the one who posted the photos on her photo blog. This was probably found by some intern's mom who then in turn showed it to a producer that she worked with.

Guy decides to take pictures to help him and his daughter grieve the loss of his wife, and you guys jump to the conclusion that he's flaunting his trust fund money and that he'll end up molesting his daughter in 8-9 years...

I remember reading a story about a widower, and how he was getting a lot of sympathy from women... And then he noticed that the women were starting to fight with each other over him.. He did say having to deal with women fighting over him did help ease some of the pain by replacing it with confusion, and bewilderment,.

Oh, good, I was hoping I wasn't the only one who found the pictures somewhat icky. People never really look at their lives and realize how creepy they can be.

You have nobody to blame but yourself. Those pictures have nothing to do with the male perspective. They are about the daughter inheriting her mother's legacy, a process which usually takes a lifetime but in this case was cut short. There is nothing remotely sexual about it, except in your mind.

My grandfather-in-law has been a widower for 10 years, and during that time he has been doing splendidly with the ladies.  Even in the nursing home at 94 he's got girlfriends - and they're not in it for the money because that all went to the nursing home. Turns out that once you hit 80 or so, you can do really well just by having your own car and a decent amount of functioning brain cells.

But to be in your 30's/40's with a house, decent money, adorable kid? Libido trumps grief sooner or later. He'll be drowning in it like Jeter.

That's my wife's rationale regarding my desire for a motorcycle - you can have one after the kids are out of the house, but there's no way you're leaving me alone here with them.

ristst: I missed the part in the article where it mentions a trust fund. Where does it say that?


In the mind of lockers, no man in his late 30s, living in the hotbed of unattainable property values that is Ohio, could possibly afford to buy or rent a period single family home. I'm not sure what that says about his goals and capabilities, but at least, I suppose, he doesn't see a paedophile where normal people, including the bride's sister, see a doting father!

The fact that this is what you got out of those pictures tells me a lot about you. I guarantee that the loss of his wife has created a bond between him and his child that most of us will never be able to understand, and it's not sexual in any way. Caring for her has probably kept him going when he just wanted to quit, and the fact that he is her only parent means that he is her entire world. You can practically feel the love coming from those photos, and all you thought about was him molesting her. I'm 'super icked out', by you!
 
2013-12-17 11:57:57 AM
So many feels.

I cannot even imagine the sorrow and heartbreak, and the renewal of these feelings as they pack up things they never even remembered having. It's literally closing the chapter of mom and opening a new one of just the two of them.

When I first read it (it's a blog post of her sister's, a photographer IIRC, and it was shared amongst the photographers circles I'm a part of) I cried... And cried... And cried some more... And hugged my babies so tight.

Then I made the extremely stupid decision to read the blog post about the day her sister died, and cried for the entire rest of the day.

Pregnancy hormones + sad story = doooooooom. Truth.
