Try not to cry


Ashley Picco died in her sleep.  She was married and pregnant.

A few days later, doctors performed an emergency Cesarean Section to try to save the baby, only 24 weeks old.

While the baby, named Lennon, was dying in an incubator, Chris, his father, sang this Beatles song and played it on a guitar.
