Gradually we lost touch with each other as he made other friends and I made friends in my new neighborhood.
I always wondered where he ended up and what he ended up doing so spent some time searching his family on Ancestry, I now have some family info and some of the where but not much of the how and the what. He went to High School at Concordia Academy on Syndicate and then on to College at Augustana in Minneapolis. He must have been quite the hockey player as he shows up on both those schools teams. His parents have both passed on and are buried in Elmhurst Cemetery not far from the house that we moved to on Parkview Ave. Checking on his grandparents, I found that both of his grandfathers were Lutheran ministers.
" The Photographs are like diaries and scapbooks I've kept since childhood. I'm trying with the camera to hold on and to understand my own feelings and experiences. But the photographs are also a way of looking outside myself to see how other people face the losses of everyday, ordinary life." Charles Hagen quoting photographer Margaret Sartor in the Fall 1996 issue of Doubletake.
