When you lose someone you love, your world can feel like it is torn apart. A gaping hole is left in your life where that person used to be. Soulumination, a Washington-based organization, just wants to help families through that grieving process and let them peacefully remember their loved ones - free of charge. They capture the person you love in a timeless photograph, so that when they are gone, you can remember them just the way you want to. (It'll be hard to make it through these without crying.)
