Barely more than 15 years later, I took the last photo of my daughter moments after she died, of cancer, on January 3, 2021. I'm a photojournalist. It was only natural that I documented just about every moment of the beautiful life of Becs, as my wife, Marisa, and I called her. Harder, much harder, was documenting her illness and death from a rare and extremely aggressive form of bone cancer.
