A profound sense of emptiness pervaded my family following the loss of my mother, and we each coped with it in our own way. While my brother focused on his own family responsibilities, our father felt it was best to remove any trace of Mom from the house as quickly as possible. Over the next months, her presence gradually disappeared, leaving behind only fading memories. However, there was one item I asked my dad to keep - Mom's wedding dress. Together with Ellie, we ventured out to take photos of the dress, as a way of reflecting on her absence while preserving her essence.
