TOUCHING: Mom builds graveside sandbox so young son can play with brother

A mother’s touching tribute to her baby is breaking hearts across the nation.

When Ashlee Hammac’s son Ryan died just five days after being born, she knew her toddler Tucker needed his own way to mourn. She added a sandbox to little Ryan’s grave so 3-year-old Tucker could share his trucks with his little brother.

Hammac shared a photo of the gravesite on a Facebook page dedicated to bereaved parents. Ryan passed away from a condition that prevented blood flow to his brain. His heart was donated to save the life of another baby.
