A heartbreaking video of a father singing to his son will bring you to tears.

Chris Picco lost his wife, Ashley, following an emergency C-section to save their son.

Over the last few days of Lennon’s life, Chris brought his guitar to the NICU and played for his son.

Baby Lennon, just 24 weeks old, passed away a few days later.

“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. 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.”

A Memorial fund was set up for Chris to pay medical and funeral costs for his son and wife.
