Just over seven months have passed since Muhammad Ali died on June 3 of last year.

Just look at this beautiful, touching shot of her beloved father holding her when she was just a precious baby.

Like Laila, Muhammad Ali left us all with a lifetime of memories — both in and out of the ring — that we'll remember today and many more days in the future.

Happy birthday to "The Greatest."

Gone, but never forgotten.
