I posted this sculpture titled “Remembering” a year or so ago while it was being cast, but this statue has significant meaning to me as it was my father’s favorite sculpture of mine as it portrays a US Marine, my father was a Marine. It was the reason he came to CO in the fall of 2013, as we had planned on installing the sculpture together, driving to Nebraska, however the project wasn’t finished in the time he was in Colorado so we could not drive out together.
On April 30, 2015 I sold a second casting of this statue and a few hours later David J. Betti suddenly passed away while walking his dog Sarge. It was a day of a high and a low, to both extremes, and a day that I will never forget. “Remembering” will forever remind me of dad.
