Tragic Loss of a Newborn Inspires Town to Pay It Forward One Act of Kindness at a Time (VIDEO)

One can only imagine how it feels to lose a child. It's something no parent should ever have to face. Jillian Gaw and others around her Massachusetts town are remembering her son, Patrick, who only lived a few hours after birth due to complications. They continue to keep his memory alive through kind gestures that help enrich the lives of others.

Even the smallest act of kindness can be so appreciated. Sometimes, you never truly know the impact you can have on others.

Stories like this are extremely sad (who wants to hear about tragedy that involves a child?), and yet, has the power to be extremely inspiring. If there's one thing I've learned, it's this: Life is too short, and tomorrow is never guaranteed. Appreciate what you have while you have it and try to enrich the lives of others.
