Annie McCarrick aged 12

Annie McCarrick is 12 years old in the picture. She's sitting on a wall, dressed in a pink T-shirt and grey shorts, holding her aunt Maureen's bridal bouquet.

White ribbons stream from the stems, skimming her sun-kissed legs. She's smiling innocently from ear to ear, unaware that the shot, one of several from a now-treasured family collection, would become a lasting reminder of all that has been lost.
