Back in April, 8 year-old Lake Bozman was given a one-day contract with the Atlanta Hawks, his own jersey and the night of a lifetime.
Weeks later, he would lose his battle with acute myeloid leukemia.
Lake’s mother Anna recently married her longtime boyfriend. One of her wedding photos has been spreading across the world on social media feeds.
Why? Wedding photographer Brandy Angel told Anna that a light kept appearing beside them that never changed shape or color. When she pointed this out to Lake’s mom, she said, “I told you my baby would show up.”
Anna asked for Lake to be included in the photo, and the photographer photo-shopped him in as a ghost-like image.
Here’s what Anna shared on her Facebook wall:
Although I felt his presence that day and I was actually happy, it was almost unbearable to take family pictures without him. I could feel my emotions taking over after the ceremony when it was time to take pictures. I became anxious and almostirritated but I knew these pictures had to be taken. They turned out beautiful and thanks to my amazing photographer she was able to get some special edits done. I needed this picture more than she or anyone could ever know. THIS is my family. And we will be together again. Thank you to all of you for the support and love that you have showed our family these past 6 months. Your words of encouragement and your prayers have helped keep me going. I thank you for that. Please don’t ever stop saying Lake’s name. I love you sweet boy.
