Bruno / Chris Plachta

4 generational float

This is our last float together. My brother, Tyler (back), father Chris (middle), and grandfather Bruno (front), who could barely walk got in the water with his great grand kids and family, I took the photo, and unseen is my daughter 1 and son 7 who were also in and out of the water. My grandfather passed at 81, a few short months after this photo was taken. He was a 4 year navy vet and 48 years United Coast Guard Aux in South Haven, MI. They practically raised us in Lake Michigan. This will always be one of my all time favorite photos. A long time tradition and shows the limits you go for memories with the ones you love.
