A 5-year-old boy goes to the grave of his twin brother to tell him about his first day of Kindergarten. He still dreams of his twin brother

Siblings will always have a special affinity with one another. Twins, on the other hand, elevate that bond to a whole new level. However, sometimes one of the twins does not make it into this world.

Walker and Willis Myrick are said to be twin brothers who embarked on adventures together. One of them, however, did not make it to this planet due to ill fate.

Willis had twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS) prior to the birth of the twins. This indicated she died while still in the womb.


Even though the two boys never met in this life, their mother, Brooke Davis, believes they have a particular bond.

“That’s just the way things are. “I think he’ll always be close to his brother,” she says.

Willis, the young boy’s twin brother, was frequently in his dreams. His parents also took him to Willis’ grave, where he talked to his deceased brother. Davis would occasionally photograph these pleasant events.

Walker visited his brother’s cemetery in 2012, when he was five years old and had just begun kindergarten. He leaned against the tombstone, telling his brother about his first day of school.

“Willis truly lives through Walker,” Davis adds, “and I think he keeps an eye on him.”

She said that the small kid would be so excited to see his brother that he would get out of the car before Davis.

“I still think about my brother, and I know that he is always looking over me,” he stated in a Christmas 2016 video.

Walker’s bond with Willis, according to Davis, has given her serenity and made it easier for her to deal with the loss of her kid.

But Davis is determined not to forget Willis. Every year on the twins’ birthday, their family organizes “The Walker and Willis Birthday Walk,” which includes a fundraising auction and T-shirt sale.


The event seeks to raise awareness of TTTS and donate $2,500 to the TTTS Foundation each year. Davis also has advice for families going through the same thing she did with TTTS.

“I’d tell them that their children will never abandon them,” I’d say.

Walker still thinks about and honors his twin brother, who died before he was born, demonstrating this.

We are thinking of the family and wish them the best of luck in their efforts to raise funds and awareness.
