Soldier's mother

Really not one of my best portraits, but I found it pretty touching that this mother keeps alive many of the plants that were at her daughter's military funeral.

Mary Bosveld – mother of Army Pfc. Rachel Bosveld who was killed in an Oct. 26, 2003 mortar attack at Abu Ghraib, Iraq – sits for a portrait near plants she keeps alive from her daughter's funeral at home in Grand Chute, Wis., Friday, March 21, 2008. Pfc. Bosveld was the first Wisconsin female and fifth Wisconsinite killed in the war in Iraq.
