Mom Adds Sandbox To Boy’s Grave so Older Brother can play

I was reading this news on people.com A mother wanted to pay tribute to her 5 days old son who had died. She at first was going to decorate it with glass pebbles but beleived her older son needed a place to mourn.  So what she did, was placing a sandbox so the boy could play over the grave. The post went viral on facebook and she got lots of support from them.

“The more I thought about it, the more I wanted something my other son Tucker could be incorporated in. He always goes out there with me, and sits out there, and sings lullabies, and talks to him just like he was there. So I wanted it to be special for him too. His favorite thing right now is trucks.”I wanted to help. I wanted other people, because I know it wasn’t just me, to have someone to talk to…to have a place they could depend on. And I wanted to feel like Ryan was helping still, because in those five days he changed our family so much.”

It’s an unfortunate story, read more about the heartbreaking story of the mother : http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20796530,00.html
