Thank you all so much for all of your wonderful comments as they always mean so much to me. Also thank you to the judge for picking this image and for your comments. When I took this shot...not only did the Vet leave a piece of his heart at the wall with his brother, but I left a piece of my heart with this vet. It riped my heart out and by the time I was leaving...I could barely see where I was going.

Ah, Becky...you caught this very sad and poignant moment with tears in your own eyes to match his. The Wall is full of such unbearably heart-wrenching moments. The pain and sadness is achingly palpable and so very easily transferred to sympathetic and sensitive bystanders. Despite the emotion of the moment on both your parts, you've captured a remarkable and touching image. Congratulations on a fine Finalist.
