K.C. Hohensee was present in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit earlier in the week and shot video of Chris singing “Blackbird” by the Beatles.
“There are times in life, when you witness something so beautiful, and so heart-wrenching, words won't do, and only music will suffice. This is one of those times,” Hohensee wrote on his Facebook page. “Cannot express the gratitude I have for being a live witness to this special time between Chris & Lennon. Absolutely moving and a life-changing moment for me.”
The video, posted to YouTube, quickly made its way around social media and had been seen more than 300,000 times as of Thursday morning.
A memorial service for Ashley and Lennon is set for Saturday evening at a church in Loma Linda.
A fund has been set up by friends to help Chris with medical costs. By Thursday morning more than $63,000 had been raised, surpassing a goal of $50,000.
