A Tribute to Wife

Not every love story has a happy ending. Rafael, 35, from Brazil, lost his wife Tatiane, 27, in 2013 after she was killed in a road accident. To honor his wife, Rafael organized a photo shoot with his three-year-old daughter, Raisa, that mimicked photos he had taken with his wife in the week before their wedding in 2009.

Raisa, whose mother died before she’d even reached her first birthday, wore Tatiane’s jewelry and clothes, and mimicked her poses with her dad. The family dog, which was around when Tatiane was still alive and featured in the original shoot, also appears in the pictures. In one photo, Raisa grins as she wraps her arms around her father’s neck while in another she tenderly touches his face. She also recreated a solo shot of Tatiane, in which she appears wearing her beaded jewelry and a similar white tank top and jeans.

Sometimes love won’t fade over time and true love can overcome distance, even life and death.

We hold onto almost everything just in case we might need them in some hypothetical future that doesn’t actually exist. We believe that things represent memories. But memories aren’t in things, they are part of us and our thoughts. So prioritize experience over possessions.
