There is a book I love called "Lincoln: A Photobiography" by Russell Freedman. There is a certain page that fascinates me. It shows portraits of Abraham Lincoln that were taken over the course of the Civil War. The toll that leading the country during those years took on him physically is shocking to see when they are all put together. He looks noticeably older and tired.
I decided to put together my own photo collage of Wes over the six months that chemotherapy waged it's very own war on his body. I don't know what happened after treatment six, but to me he looks dramatically different. I feel like he kind of shrinks as the treatments continued and eating became harder and harder. He can't wear his wedding ring anymore because it just falls off. His hair became thinner and thinner, but there is that radiant smile right up to the end.
