I like this posting. The words and photo do work together well. I look for physical features that I may have inherited from him, but no, none that I can see. I think I have the British features myself.
That is a well done photo. It is amazing the quality that could be done and how they were consistent at it.

Oh my, what exactly is the perfect look? I'd forgive him his imperfect nose any day... grins.

Alan, This photo is arresting as it has a keen resemblance to a dear friend who took his life a few years ago. Bitter-sweet. -j
