Father Sings to His Dying Newborn Son [Video]
I remember my grandfather saying the hardest thing he has ever had to do was bury his daughter. This comes from a man that buried his wife, brother, sisters, and dozens of friends.I have always took that to heart, so I can only imagine how 30 year old Chris Picco feels, after losing his wife after having a Cesareansection.
A couple of days afterwards Chris Picco wrote this very sad letter via social media to friends and family and others who set up and donated to the memorial fund of Ashley Picco:
"Dear friends, family, and supporters; it is with an unbelievably heavy heart that I write this.
My little fighter, Lennon James Picco went to sleep in his daddy’s arms late last night.
He was surrounded by family, friends, and the best doctors, nurses and hospital staff in the world.
This is a very sad story buy at the same time shows you how great and special it is to be a father.
He was dressed in an outfit that Ashley bought for him, with little guitars on it, and wrapped in a blanket made by a dear friend.
I am so thankful for the four unforgettable days I got to spend with him.
His mommy would have been so beyond joy to see him and to hold him, touch him, bathe him, sing to him - as I have had the privilege of doing.
I have been so blessed and honored to love him before he was formed, to cherish him while mommy carried him, meet him face to precious face, and hold his perfect little body while we said “goodbye for now”.
There are no words, but I wanted to keep you updated, as your love and support has meant more than anything in the world.
All you need is love."
This video is very sad but at the same time shows how special it is to be a father.
