Really sad

I got the really sad news today that Terry, wife of Bruce, passed away last saturday.
We became friends after their first 6-day photo tour with me almost 4 years ago and returned for a 8-day tour last year. Terry fell in love with Cambodia. Her wish was to get a Buddhist ceremony in Cambodia so we will arrange one.

Rest in Peace, Terry. You’ll always be in our hearts.
