Jimmy Marsh was only with his family for 5 weeks, but the impact he left will last a lifetime.
From reconciliation between Jimmy's estranged grandparents to strengthening the bonds between his mom and her mother-in-law, Jimmy's death has brought its own kind of healing for the family, despite the void he left behind in his parents' hearts.
"His death has brought so many blessings," his mother, BJ, says, "It sounds weird, but it's true. It has healed huge family wounds."
Even though he only lived with them a short time, Jimmy left behind sweet memories for his family.
"Nighttime was our quiet time -- just him and me. He'd squeak like a little mouse... it was the best sound ever," BJ remembers.
