In Memory of Kellen
My fifteen year old nephew died from ALL leukemia 3-1/2 years ago. He would have been 19 this month. Every year around his birthday I think about doing a portrait of him for his mother, but I never have been able to look at pictures of him for too long without crying. Finally this year I was able to do the portrait. They say time heals all wounds but I think time just makes the wound more bearable. Kellen had the biggest widest grin on earth and a heart to match.
As a Christian, I know Kellen is in a far better place than here but that doesn't make his absence any easier for the family to bear.
