A lifetime of pain
Category: Spontaneous Moments
Photo and caption by Susanne Finke
This photo was taken soon after my mother was diagnosed with pancreatic stage 4 cancer. Prior to this she had recently lost her husband of over 50 years, daughter, her sister, and her son. You can see the pain in her eyes. I've taken many pictures of her but none show her life like this one.
