A new message on the Folly Boat tonight.

In Memory

I haven’t been writing entries with my photographs in the last few days but tonight’s image is special.  I had planned on dropping by on Folly Road to get a quick shot of the “Folly Boat” for my project.  The Folly Boat washed ashore during hurricane Hugo two decades ago and has since become a permanent part of Charleston’s charm.  In an unspoken honor system families and groups will repaint the side of the boat with their own messages, sometimes in honor of graduations or other achievements, sometimes in honor of special events, and other times, as here in this image, in memorial to a loved one.

As I pulled alongside the boat tonight, the family of Mrs. Pat Pierce was finishing their memorial to her passing today.  They had honored their father’s passing in the same way, with the same colors.  I was honored they allowed me to photograph their family event.  I was touched by the way they were able to celebrate their mother’s life well lived even in the midst of the sadness of her passing.  It reminded me once again that the most important legacy we leave are the lives we touched.  The love this family showed and the honks of support and sympathy from passing cars left no doubt that Mrs. Pierce was a special lady.  I am humbled.
