Others supported Chrissy’s tribute by sharing body art that they got following the loss of their loved ones, including who fan who wrote, “It’s a great tribute, my artist mixed in Archer’s ashes into the ink so I have a piece of him with me always.” The user attached a photo of the tattoo, which featured the child’s name, an archery kit, and small prints of a hand and foot.

In a lengthy caption attached to several very personal photos from inside a hospital room, the model wrote: “We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before. We were never able to stop the bleeding and give our baby the fluids he needed, despite bags and bags of blood transfusions. It just wasn’t enough.”
She concluded her statement by saying, “We are so grateful for the life we have, for our wonderful babies Luna and Miles, for all the amazing things we’ve been able to experience. But everyday can’t be full of sunshine. On this darkest of days, we will grieve, we will cry our eyes out. But we will hug and love each other harder and get through it.”
