I can't believe we passed the 10 year mark of losing J.T. this fall.  So many emotions over the last couple months since the anniversary as news of others passing has hit too close to home.  Something I've learned over the last 10 years is that although you may heal from the hole left behind when a loved one is taken from this life, you're never the same and life doesn't "go back to normal".  You never know when you'll be hit with a reminder of what you've lost or how it will affect you and those you care about.  The last few weeks especially have been painful to watch as my dear husband's family has been shaken yet again with the loss of one of J.T.'s close friends.  Even the many tender mercies can't stop the ache from rising and the tears from sliding down the cheeks of those I love.  It's heartbreaking.

To those who have lost someone, never lose hope.  Never give up.  It does get easier, with time.  This image is our family, and adding J.T. in through the magic of Photoshop is merely a visual token which solidifies our faith that he is still a part of us.  Still a part of our family and we will see and live with him again.  I know this is true and I pray that somehow, perhaps, this picture can give you that same knowledge too.  God bless.

I had SO MUCH FUN capturing these moments!  This family is one of my favorites, maybe because they're so snarky it reminds me of my own siblings... could be...
