Briones + Uncle Sam

briones_sam-7175 The last time I was in the Bay Area I saw my uncle on his death bed. It sucked. Sam was an amazing man. At a young age he always encouraged my creative endeavors. If there is anything I want more in life; it's to be just a little more like my uncle Sam.

My aunt BJ and Sam would hike Briones together so when he passed she invested in a memorial that sits on one of it's ridges.

It's hard getting the family together but I think we can all agree that it was great that we did.
