Images from Debbie and Mark’s wedding that I shot at Church by the Side of the Road last weekend. After the ceremony, we did a photo walk at Nicholas Conservatory & Gardens in Rockford.
For 72 long years, the family of U.S. Marine Corps Pvt. Dale Robert Geddes was unable to say farewell to him with a proper burial.
They finally had that chance on Aug. 22. He was my mother’s cousin.
Geddes was killed during the World War II Battle of Tarawa in the islands in the Pacific. During the fighting, his remains were hurriedly buried. Unfortunately, they were in an area that came to be known as the “Lost Cemetery” because military officials were unable to find it for years.
Then last year, through the work of History Flight and the Stone Foundation, the lost graves were found and among them were the remains of Pvt. Geddes. The Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency confirmed Tuesday that the remains were those of Geddes.
Had the weekend off and took some pics at the AnimeNEXT convention. My daughter Isabel (below) went as Houndoom. More photos here: http://jaybryant.com/animeNEXT/

I have this yearly habit from all of my years working as a journalist of putting together a end of year wrap-up. So this has been a busy year for me with a lot of poltics, travel, wedding photography and gardening.
