5-year-old visits grave of his twin brother to tell him all about first day of kindergarten, still dreams of him

There is always a special connection between siblings. However, twins always take that connection to a whole new level. Some twin siblings may never even make it to this world.

Walker Myrick and Willis Myrick were supposed to be twin brothers who explored the world together. Unfortunately, one of them did not make it into this world due to unfortunate circumstances.

Willis died in the womb as a result of twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS).

Brooke Davis, mother of both boys, says they still share a special connection despite not knowing each other in this life.

“It’s just one of those things that happens.”. He will always have a connection to his brother, she says.

His parents would also take him to Willis’ grave where he would have full-on conversations with his dead twin brother. She would sometimes take pictures of these heartwarming encounters.

Walker visited his brother’s grave when he was 5 years old and just beginning kindergarten in 2012. As he leaned against the gravestone, he told his brother all about his first day of school.

According to Davis, Willis lives through Walker and watches over him.

The little boy would be so excited to see his brother that he would jump out of the car even before Davis did.

When Walker was 9 years old, he said on camera, “I still remember my brother today, and he watches over me all the time.”

According to Davis, Walker’s bond with Willis helped her accept the loss of her child more easily than she would have otherwise.

Davis, however, does not want to forget Willis. In honor of the twins’ birthdays, the Walker and Willis family organizes “The Walker and Willis Birthday Walk,” which includes an auction and a t-shirt sale.

 In addition to raising awareness about TTTS, the event will donate $2,500 annually to the TTTS Foundation. As a result of her experience with TTTS, Davis has advice for families going through the same thing.

“I would tell them that their children will never leave them.”

Walker honors his twin brother who never even made it into the world by remembering and honoring him.

Wishing the family all the best in their efforts to raise awareness and funds.
