Dawn Williams, 22 right, hugs Dren'e Woodfork, 17, in the parking lot of Fountain Funeral Home during the visitation for their cousin Keyara Williams.
One of Keyara Williams cousins, Brittany Flowers, 19, cries while attending the visitation for Williams at the Fountain Funeral Home.

I always find it difficult to photograph at funerals.  In order to empower myself to intrude into the grief of the people attending a funeral I remind myself about the value the photographs have for the community, and the honor it shows for the deceased by making their funeral a public affair.
