Kelly O’Connell’s wedding day will be remembered in a variety of ways. It was not only the happiest day of her life, when she married her best friend, but it was also the day she had to say goodbye to another, Charlie Bear, a 15-year-old black Labrador. It was only natural for him to be by her side.
Katie Lloyd, Kelly’s maid of honor and sister, would be the one to walk Charlie Bear down the aisle on the big day.
The dog had been diagnosed with a brain tumor in April and died on September 9th of that year.
Charlie Bear, rest in peace. You will be remembered and loved for the rest of your life.
“I have to keep shooting even though I’m in a puddle of tears behind the camera,” photographer Jen Dziuvenis told herself as tears streamed down her face.
What a lovely way to say goodbye to her dearest friend, who had been by her side through everything.
