These Parents’ Annual Tribute to Their Late Son Will Melt Your Heart

Walking your child to school for the first time is a precious moment. It could be nerve-racking not only for the child but for the parents as well. That is something a couple from Iowa would never miss even if their son, Caleb, is no longer with them.

Husband and wife, Aaron and Sarah Rinard, lost one of their sons when he was just about seven months old. Their son, Caleb, had died from an injury received during birth in 2012. Caleb was deeply loved by his parents. It is because of this love that the Rinards decided to go out every year and help their community to commemorate their son.

According to Sarah Rinard: “every year on his birthday and the anniversary of his passing, we go out to eat and leave a big tip or pay for someone’s meal.”

The couple started doing this in 2012, and this year Caleb would have been going to kindergarten for the first time. The Rinards wanted to have the experience of taking Caleb to school for the first time. But since Caleb was no longer around and the couple still wanted to go, they thought of doing something good for Caleb’s would’ve been classmates.

“We wanted to do something positive instead of making it a sad day to commemorate him. We were thinking about the things we would be doing with him. We wanted to make that walk. We were going to make that walk regardless,” Aaron said.

So the couple got a list of the things needed by the kindergarteners and bought them from the store. They loaded them up into their car and brought it to school.

The couple said walking down the street and heading to the school made them feel sad that Caleb was not with them, but at the same time they were happy for the children who were going to receive those supplies.

“It was sad knowing we should be holding Caleb’s hand and wondering what kind of day he would have had or who his teacher would have been,” an emotional Aaron said. “We were grateful to be a part of the excitement that comes with the first day of school,” he added.

Everybody in the school was very thankful and happy with the donations, including the Rinard family.
