LOVE and LOSS at its most poignant: Chris Picco tenderly sings to his dying infant son Lennon in the hospital, days after his beloved wife Ashley has died in childbirth. Four days later, Lennon passes away.
Watch Chris tenderly sing "Blackbird" to his son.
'I am so thankful for the four unforgettable days I got to spend with him," says Chris. "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."
