Nicole and Deonta Bennett from Jackson, Mississippi were extremely excited to be pregnant with their second child. Deonta and his 4-year-old son had the idea to arrange a photo shoot for their pregnant Nicole. But 2 months before his wife was due, Deonta passed away unexpectedly. Nicole was overwhelmed with sadness, but she wanted to go ahead with the photo shoot - and she wanted her dead husband with her.

Photographer Sidney Conley photographed Nicole and her son in the same park that the couple had taken their engagement photos a few years back. Conley then digitally added images of Deonta to the new photos. The resulting photos even brought the photographer to tears, "I added Deonta in there as though he is looking out for his family. It shows that he still wants to be sure that they are doing alright."

"I wanted to do something special," said the widow, "These are memories for my son of his father and also for my daughter who will never meet her father." These photos from the photographer's website have been shared nearly 100,000 times already. It really is a beautiful gesture to show how our loved ones never really leave us even if they do pass on from this world.
