There’s a chance you’ve already been rocked by this video of brand new father Chris Picco singing the Beatles’ famous “Blackbird” to his son Lennon James Picco from the side of his incubator. For a few days, it was just father and son after mother, Ashley Picco, passed away in her sleep following an emergency C-section.
Only days later, Lennon also passed, being held by his dad and surrounded by his family and friends. It takes incredible strength to keep going after the loss of your spouse and likely infinite more after the loss of a child. Our Intent family believes in the strength of the Picco family who showed such gentleness and courage during what might be the hardest moment of their lives. Let this be a reminder to love and live will and to cherish every second you get.
