On July 24, 2013, our friend George McHenry, while valiantly fighting cancer, and knowing he was fighting a losing battle, very courageously and honorably came out to Michael's Cafe to say goodbye and see his many friends in the familiar dance setting he enjoyed so much.
Although George did not have the strength to dance, he remained positive and flashed that winning smile of his all evening. I will always remember and admire the courage and grace that he exhibited during such a difficult time.
These images capture just a part of those friends, past and present who showed George how much he was loved and respected. I only regret that I didn't think to place my camera in the hands of someone else so that I could be captured with George as well.
Sadly, just three weeks after these images were taken, George lost his battle and passed away on Friday, August 16, 2013.
Rest In Peace "Gentleman George".
