(1011 Now) A Nebraska high school student’s senior pictures are gaining thousands of interactions on social media.

But they aren’t your typical senior pictures, they are honoring her late father.

Aurora High School senior Julia Yllescas’s father died in 2008 when he was fighting for our country in Afghanistan. She said when she went to take her senior pictures, she wanted him to be there in some way.

“Why it has hit my heart so hard is that I almost felt when I saw those pictures that he truly was there,” said Yllescas.

On Saturday, Yllescas had her senior pictures taken and sent in pictures to the photographer to see if she could create an “angel picture”.

“And to have a piece of him with me throughout my senior year. Because sometimes it feels like where are you, why did you have to go,” said Yllescas.

Let's STOP the Modern Day Downgrade

“Daily, the work at Pulpit & Pen is filling the void of places where 100 men once stood and that is not an exaggeration. Day in and day out, they tirelessly vet offerings and influence of ministries around the world that they may guard the little sheep from the least to the most damning of errors. This is hard, unappreciative and alienating toil... JD Hall and his contributors such as Seth Dunn, are almost single-handedly leading the way in a rescue attempt of conservative Evangelicalism and especially the Southern Baptist Convention.” -Alex A. Guggenheim
