Sophia -steffel07

When Redditor steffel07‘s daughter passed away he made a very simple request of Redditors: “My daughter recently passed away after a long battle in the children’s hospital. Since she was in the hospital her whole life we never were able to get a photo without all her tubes. Can someone remove the tubes from this photo?”

Reddit’s reaction was swift and wonderful.

“This is super late but I really wanted to help out too. Here’s my attempt. I hope I didn’t overdo it on the color correction.” –funkybrewster
“I did a paint over for you (painting over the photo itself): http://imgur.com/tf9CbVs I took some liberties with the color, and background, PM me if you would like the psd, or want any changes.” –ChangingYang

“not photoshop, but a small sketch.” – izzyzzi
“I’m very sorry… My son is 9 months old and I couldn’t sleep without at least trying.” –Markaes4
“This is so far down, I doubt you’ll get to see it, but I tried.” –Eternity42Immensity
Took Markaes’ one and fixed some discolorations, removed moisture around eyes, and evened out the skin tone a bit more. –eoJ1

brachiators: “OP – If you could, tell us the little one’s name.

I know she was too young to drink, but if loved ones are lost, we will light a candle and pour a round where I bartend.

Also, I am a bad Catholic but promised my Ma I would go to mass more often and it’s always better if I am praying for someone else.

Stay strong.”
