"Right before Easter an email appeared in my inbox with a subject line that simply said Please Read. I didn't recognize the sender's name. Since starting this blog I've recieved messages from many new folks, so that by itself was no cause for concern. I opened Please Read and the reason for the writer's urgency became crystal clear. The writer, Matt, informed me that he'd just found my site and the graphite drawing I had done of his step-brother, Lance Corporal Nicholas G. Ciccone. Whenever I'm asked what I believe to be my finest work I will unhesitatingly reply that it's this portrait. Matt also informed me that his beloved brother committed suicide in October of 2003."
