    Taurean Summers, 28, was a paramedic with a company called Elite Medical Transport, KFOX reported. In August 2014, he was helping transport a brain tumor patient by air when the plane crashed. Summers and three others died.

    Gordillo told BuzzFeed News that Stephanie Summers contacted her recently and asked if she could schedule a photo shoot with her son. But she also asked if Gordillo could incorporate her late husband into the photos.

    Gordillo said she has done photos like this for loved ones who have passed away before.

    The photographer agreed, and was able to use a photo she had taken of the couple previously...
