American Dream

Steve, now in his 90s, has lived in Pittsburgh all of his life where he raised two children with his wife, Mary, of more than 60 years. Steve is a WW1 Veteran who was actually in Pearl Harbor when it was bombed by the Japanese. Mary has worked all her life, as a mom, a clerk in a store and as a volunteer for several organizations, including the church where she is still active. Mary now visits Steve in a nursing home every day and they still kiss. A lot.
  • These are portraits of a couple in their golden years who greatly inspired me with their stories of life and their great faith in God. Devout Catholics, Mary often spoke of "the blessed mother." Steve served many years in the army and was actually at Pearl Harbor when it was bombed during WW1. He later became a steel worker in Pittsburgh and then a golf caddy. The two met while in their twenties and were married more than 60 years before Steve passed away.
