LOMA LINDA, Calif. — When Chris Picco sang to his pregnant wife shortly before her death, she told him she could feel their son moving.

Chris thought it was only fitting that a song be one of the last things his son heard. One day before his infant son Lennon James Picco passed away, his father sang him The Beatles song “Blackbird.”

According to the Post on YouTube, Chris’ wife Ashley passed away as Lennon was delivered by emergency C-section at 24 weeks old. From the YouTube post:

During the pregnancy, Ashley would often feel Lennon moving to music so Chris asked if he could bring his guitar into the NICU and play for Lennon, which he did for several hours during the last days of Lennon’s precious life. One day after filming this, Lennon went to sleep in his daddy’s arms.
