South haven Pier Lighthouse. Kalamazoo, Michigan 2012

I used to come here often when I was upset about life, or just needed to think.  My son passed  away in 2008. This was one of his favorite places to go and when I’m home I release balloons there each year on his birthday.  I love it there.  It’s pretty and calm and I feel close to him and free.
