A beautiful and confident Vietnamese woman in her thirties is sitting on a bench inside of the picture frame. She’s wearing sunglasses, a beige pant suit, a black collared shirt underneath, a feminine gold watch, and a ring. She has a big smile. In the background, there is a car and a set of stairs leading to a stone building.

Note from Logan: Last year, my wife lost the very special woman who originally raised them. They wrote this beautiful piece to help process this loss and welcomed me to share it here.
