Teen Honors Father Killed in Afghanistan with Special Senior Photos
AURORA, Neb. -- It's been "extremely, extremely" tough growing up without her father, Julia Yllescas tells CNN. "It gets harder and harder every year." Army Ranger Capt. Robert Yllescas never came home after he deployed to Afghanistan when Julia was 7 years old. As she started her last year of high school in Aurora, Nebraska, she had a photographer edit an angelic visage of her father into her senior photos so that he could be with her during the most monumental moment of her life.
