Talia Segelman, Niece

The lyrics from this song from Wicked, reminds my dad and me

of my Uncle Jeff. We are better people, for having knew him.

 

Changed for the Better

 

I’ve heard it said

That people come into our lives for a reason

Bringing something we must learn

And we are led

To those who help us most to grow

If we let them

And we help them in return

Well, I don’t know if I believe that’s true

But I know I’m who I am today

Because I knew you…

 

Like a comet pulled from orbit

As it passes a sun

Like a stream that meets a boulder

Halfway through the wood

Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better?

But because I knew you

I have been changed for good

 

It well may be

That we will never meet again

In this lifetime

So let me say before we part

So much of me

Is made from what I learned from you

You’ll be with me

Like a handprint on my heart

And now whatever way our stories end

I know you have re-written mine

By being my friend…

 

Like a ship blown from its mooring

By a wind off the sea

Like a seed dropped by a skybird

In a distant wood

Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better?

But because I knew you

    Julie, I have always loved your phtoography and your eye for catching beautiful shots, but as time has gone by I guess I have just got used to expecting amazing photos from you. But suddenly today, looking at these wedding photos, I realised you really have got up there with the BEST professionals, these are impressively fabulous and you really are an outstanding photographer
