Grieving mom gives heartfelt message to other mothers

After an unspeakable tragedy, a mother who lost her 4-year-old son is opening up, hoping other parents hear her message.

Ashley Grimm of Emmett, Idaho lost her youngest son, Titus, in a car accident.  A large rock rolled into her lane and she hit it, the van rolled and her son died.

In the aftermath she wrote an impassioned Facebook post that has been shared more than 400,000 times.

She wrote:  "I feel led to write this to all you Mamas because I have a longing to look each of you in the eyes and tell you this: 'Hold your babies tight'. That's all I want to shout to the world."

She continued:  "take every hug and kiss they bring you - even the twenty fifth one they use just to get out of bed at night. And really squeeze them."

Grimm added:  "Go hug your babies right now. Soak in their smell, look at the innocent sparkle in their eyes that is lost somewhere between childhood and adulthood."
