As Mary Beth Taylor-Eslary said goodbye to her husband one day in May 2015, she had no idea that it would be for the last time. But months later Taylor-Eslary paid tribute to her spouse in the most touching way possible.
In the summer of 2015, Taylor-Eslary and her beloved dog Blek posed for photographer Christy Boyd in a range of pictures. According to Boyd’s Facebook page, “Photography is the perfect way to capture all of life’s precious moments.” She added, “It’s my pleasure to help you capture those ‘Memories.’”
In the images, Taylor-Eslary and Blek pose side-by-side as Taylor-Eslary holds up a series of signs. And while the photographs may seem fairly unassuming at first, their poignancy soon becomes clear. After all, Boyd was inspired to photograph the Pennsylvania-based pair after hearing their tragic story.
