OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. --  It may be the greatest family photo that never was.

Lane Smith and Sierra Sharry became the proud parents of little Taos last summer.

But before their son was born, Lane died in a boating accident.

“July 13th 2014 was the absolute worst day of my life,” Sharry posted on Facebook. “I lost my best friend. The father of my unborn child.”

A photographer in Oklahoma found an old picture of him, and carefully Photoshopped a "ghost" image of dad into a mother-and-son photo to create an heirloom family picture.


Now it's gone viral on Facebook.

Since photographer Kayli Rene first posted the picture, she says she's been swamped with requests from other families for similar photos.
