This Touching Wedding Photo Honors a Mom's Angel Son

She couldn't imagine taking a family picture without him.


Anna Bozman Thompson's wedding day was full of joy and excitement, but something was missing: her oldest son, Lake. Sadly, the boy had lost his battle with Leukemia earlier this year, just three weeks before his 9th birthday. 

Thompson and her husband Travis had prolonged their big day for years as Lake battled cancer. They knew their marriage was something the boy had always wanted to see, so six months after his passing, the couple finally tied the knot last month. 

"Although I felt his presence that day and I was actually happy, it was almost unbearable to take family pictures without him," Anna .

Luckily, Thompson and her wedding photographer came up with the perfect solution. photoshopped Lake into the family shots, which include Thompson's two other children. The result is an incredibly touching photo that Thompson will forever cherish.

"I needed this picture more than [Angel] or anyone could ever know," Thompson . "Although my family will never be complete here on Earth, we will be in Heaven."
