A mother, Anna Bozman Thompson was left heartbroken when her young son died just months before her wedding day, but she made sure son, Lake was a part of her big day.
The young boy lost his battle with leukemia in May, just weeks before his ninth birthday, the Daily News reported.
When Thompson tied the knot last month, she enlisted the help of friend and photographer Brandy Angel to pay a special tribute to her little boy.
Thompson posted the beautiful image on a Facebook page dedicated to her son, ‘ Prayers for Lake Bozman ‘.
She wrote: “Somehow I have managed to continue going but there have been many days that I did not think I could. “I have honestly been making it minute to minute as grief is a huge roller coaster.”
“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 needed this picture more than the photographer or anyone could ever know. THIS is my family.”
The picture, posted on Sunday, has been liked thousands of times and shared more than 600 times.
Angel met Thompson through the her not-for-profit organization ‘Be the Change – Brandy Angel Foundation’ which takes photos of families with children who have incurable cancers.
Incredibly, when Angel came to edit the pictures, there appeared a light in the field behind the couple that never changed shape or color.
When Angel told Thompson about the strange light she said: “I told you my baby would show up”, she said.
