Mom Honors Her Dead 8-Year-Old Son In Heartbreaking Wedding Pics

Anna Thompson, 36, desperately wanted her son, Lake, to be there on her wedding day. Sadly, the eight-year-old boy died after a long struggle with leukaemia in May, months before Thompson’s October wedding. To honor his memory, Thompson had wedding photographer Brady Angel photoshop Lake into her wedding portrait.

“Although my family will never be complete here on Earth, we will be in Heaven,” Thompson told FoxNews. “I do know that ️Lake has been watching over us especially when we got married. He made sure that it would be a day that none of us would forget. Although I felt his presence that day and I was actually happy, it was almost unbearable to take family pictures without him.”

I believe that even when we lose someone, they will watch over us and protect us, until we meet again.
