Jared and Sharry Buhanan-Decker had it all—a great marriage between best friends and a baby boy on the way. But sadly, tragedy struck when Sharry passed away unexpectedly from complications of childbirth after delivering their son, JJ, via c-section. “It was supposed to be the happiest day of my life,” said a devastated Jared in a post on Reddit. Amazingly, that Reddit post led to a great comfort to the new dad and grieving father, as the community of Reddit users—total strangers—rallied around him when he posted his grief and an unusual request for help.

You see, Sharry was a musician, and had left behind several recordings that Jared could see on her computer, but couldn’t figure out how to access. So, he posted this to Reddit to see if anyone could  help him recover his wife’s songs.

Odd request for help. My wife recently died during childbirth and I need help with some of her recordings.

Jared was INUNDATED with responses, and soon had the recordings of Sharry so that he and JJ could listen and remember their beloved wife and mother.
