Love Lost: A poem written and read by Rayne Frey

Rayne and his wife, Corey, welcomed twins Redd and River into their family in 2016. Less than two months later, Redd died suddenly and unexpectedly in his sleep. Rayne wrote a poem in honor of his son and shares it here to help other SIDS/SUID parents know they are not alone in their grief. The accompanying video includes other babies who have died from SIDS or SUID. If you or someone you know has lost a baby, please contact your local public health department or visit the California SIDS Program webpage for grief support groups and services.
