A month after suffering the tragic loss of her husband, Racquel Smith enjoyed a touching moment in honor of his memory.
In a photo shared on the Instagram account of the New Orleans Saints, who Smith played for, the 33-year-old smiles as she holds up the football player’s Master’s Degree.
Racquel sits in a wheelchair after having suffered a gunshot wound to each leg in the devastating incident that killed her husband.
According to reports, the father-of-three was on track to graduating from the University’s first MBA program for artists and athletes, and was planning on coaching with the Saints before he was killed.
Though nothing will make grappling with this loss easier, we’re glad Racquel could enjoy a moment to preserve the memory of her husband.
