This is a lovely story which really shows the importance photos play in our lives. Sometimes a photo is all you have to remember someone by but what happens if you don’t have a photo at all?
This is the story of a lady who lost her son shortly after he was born. Zachary Hunter Vince was born June 13th 2008 with big green eyes, chubby cheeks and a congenital heart defect. Zachary’s mother did not have the opportunity to take photos of her child. She was too busy willing him to live.
Now, though Zachary’s Mission, she helps families of children born with critically ill children. One of her special services she arranges is professional photography where the photographer will come to the hospital. If the worst happens, at least the families will now have a visual memory they can hold in their hands.

Memories of another time still come
To me and fill my mind, with thoughts
Of you when you were young. I lie awake
‘Till the morning sun comes creeping
Through my window shade, as I dwell upon
Mistakes I’ve made. What I would give to
Go back in time and feel you’re little
Hand in mine. To cherish each fast and
Fleeting day. To hold you close and kiss
Away, each pain that life will have in
Store and try to give you so much more.
You are part and will always be, imbedded in the soul of me. While I’m
Here, I want to say, that I’ve loved you
Each and every day and when my time on
Earth is gone.
The privilege was mine to have been your Mom.
