Hello all,

Nyla Gerhardt, wife of Brad Gerhardt, has written a beautiful article for the Fairmont Photo Press about the life journey in which they have found themselves..It's on pages 10-11. I was quite moved after reading it and knew it had to be shared with the rest of Brad's classmates. We all have wonderful memories of him. 

On the eve of Thanksgiving, and after reading this article, my wish for all of you is peace and joy in the moments. May we all find ways to make them count, and may Nyla feel the strength of our support as she lovingly cares for Brad.
