"This year, you received the “most lovable” award at school. I have a ton of pictures that show just how lovable you are, but I wanted to document your award with this particular photo. Seemingly unrelated, it will forever spark the memory of you, just before the picture was taken, kissing your own arm “goodnight” as you laid your head down to rest beside the pool at Uncle Kevin’s house. If that’s not lovable, then nothing is."
