INFLUENTIAL Ashley Stock has buried her three-year-old daughter, Stevie, after the toddler died from brain cancer last month.
The social media star shared heartbreaking photos from the June 1 funeral on Friday that showed her in mourning alongside her husband, Ben, and sons Wesley, 10, and Sawyer, 7.
The grieving family has placed their hands on Stevie’s coffin in the moving black and white photos.
In another shot, her young sons kneel crying on the wooden coffin as they place roses on top.
Wesley had tears running down his face as he clung to his necklace during the service.
He was also overcome with grief when he touched his sister’s coffin.
The family used white paint to print their hands on the side of the funeral box.
Along with the glimpses of Stevie’s memorial, blogger Little Miss Momma shared the lyrics to a song from the hit musical, Hamilton.
It’s Quiet Uptown is heard in the Broadway play after the death of lead character Alexander Hamilton’s son, Philip.
“There are times that words don’t reach. There is suffering too terrible to name it “, she wrote in the caption.
Ashley continued, “You hold your child as tight as you can. And push the unimaginable away.
“If I could spare her life.” If I could trade (his) life for mine. She would be standing here right now.
“I don’t pretend to know the challenges we face. I know there is no place to replace what we have lost.
In a separate June 1 article, Ashley revealed that the family made a “heartbreaking purchase” of a new carpet right before Stevie’s death.
She then detailed the role that “this carpet” had on the difficult day of her daughter’s funeral.
“Today we’re burying you. And in that same attempt to feel anything other than pain, your father is on all fours sucking up all the wool from that rug this morning.
“I can hear the loud hum of the vacuum cleaner through the open kitchen window as I sit in the garden arranging flowers for your casket.”
The social media star continued, “It’s a sound that probably would have annoyed me months ago and I maybe even asked him to stop.
“But today, I don’t want him to stop one day. Its hum fills your silence.
“Its hum comforts me as I tie little knots around your flowers and prayerfully select the stems that will make you smile the most.”
“Its buzz reminds me of why I have to muster all of my strength and keep going,” she concluded.
Last month, the online personality revealed that “the beloved little sister, daughter and friend” took “her last breath in our arms” at 1:05 pm on May 27.
Stevie was first admitted to the oncology unit at Los Angeles Children’s Hospital in early April “due to a rapid decline in motor function.”
The Instagram influencer said after speaking with “dozens of top pediatric neurologists, neurosurgeons and oncologists,” she was told her daughter had “a great lump on her brain.”
