Saying Goodbye...

Joanna Strom of Grand Rapids cradles a picture of her sister, Jackie Zmudka, who died in December after surviving for over 50 years in a coma. Strom says she knows her sister is in a better place now, and is glad she is no longer living in that condition.

Took some pictures of Kim and Mark's little guy in their home last week. Not only did Mark hold my soft box the entire time, but apple pie was involved.

Dickens, an eight-year-old female Dalmatian, rests in the living room at Peaches Bed & Breakfast on Wednesday, December 23 after guests had cleared out for the holiday weekend. "She's a comfort girl," said the dog's owner, Jane Lovett of Grand Rapids, who adopted Dickens from Dal Rescue in Columbus Ohio at four months old. Particularly mellow for a Dalmatian, Dickens spends her days napping and squirrel watching at Peaches, where guests don't hesitate to give her a pat on the head. "Everybody loves Dickens," Lovett said. (Grand Rapids Press Photo)

International Beverage

These shots are from a wine and liquor store called International Beverage we did a story on. The piece is about immigrant families who are now running successful businesses. This store is run by a father and son from India. I was surprised to find out how many comments it received on the paper's website.
