Mom builds graveside sandbox so young son can play with brother
A mom’s tribute to her deceased 5-day-old son Ryan is capturing the hearts of people all across the Internet, People reported.
Ashlee Hammac, 24, said she had initially planned to decorate the grave site with glass pebbles, but instead decided she needed to do something to allow her oldest son, 3-year-old Tucker, to mourn as well.
Hammac added a sandbox beside of Ryan’s grave so Tucker could be able to share his toys with his brother.
Hammac shared a photo of the gravesite on a Facebook page for bereaved parents and the photo quickly went viral, receiving over 174,000 likes since March 6.
After his death, Ryan’s heart was donated to save the life of another baby and Hammac said, while she was overcome with grief, she was comforted by that.
