While their baby girl, soon to be named Lennox, is due in July, Meghan thought of a special to way to spend Father’s Day. With the help from her long-time-friend, Jessie Ellex, Meghan wanted to pose for a series of photos as a way to remember her beloved husband and a fallen hero.
“Meghan had the idea to include the policeman in her photos, since she had to do this without her husband,” Ellex said. When police officers in Greenville heard about this, they did not hesitate to join. Just like Meghan, they wanted to pay respect to their fallen comrade.
So, in a series of photos, you can see a group of police officers arestanding behind Meghan and saluting her. One of the other pictures shows Meghan holding her iPhone with a picture of Allen that makes it looks like he is kissing her stomach.
Other photos include the folded American flag presented to Meghan at Allen’s funeral, and Meghan wearing Allen’s uniform shirt.
When Lennox is born, Ellex and Meghan plan to do another photo shoot to show Lennox that her father will always be with her.
“I hope that my photographs can help (Meghan) heal and others who may be going through the same situation,” Ellex said.
