RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil – In 2009, Rafael Del Col married the love of his life, Tati.

Just one week before their wedding, the happy couple took pictures together.

A few years later, the pair had a daughter and named her Raisinha.

Tragically, Rafael’s wife died in a car accident on Nov. 19, 2013.

At the time of her death, Raisinha was only 2-years-old and Rafael took on the task of becoming a single father.

Five years after taking photos with Tati, Rafael decided to recreate those pictures with Raisinha, who was just 3-years-old at the time.

“[It’s] clear that we still live this pain, the longing, but we are well, we are happy,” Rafael wrote on his blog.

Now, the photos are going viral and the video has been viewed over 1.5 million times.
