In Memoriam, for Madison Baird

On Tuesday, Feb. 10, on this lonely stretch of road outside of Walla Walla, 20-year-old Madison Baird was struck by a vehicle while she was riding her bicycle. Madison was the cousin to my Natalie, and I would learn, the friend to literally thousands of people in the Walla Walla Seventh Day Adventist community. Madison's body held on long enough to afford doctors time to give many of her organs to other people in need, one last selfless act for a girl who was praised for such things. These are the photos I made while on the trip to her funeral and memorial services last weekend.

Thank you, Damien. Nicely done. A little hard to look at, yet.
