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 unique bond with each other. But twins always take that connection to a new level. But from twins, sometimes one doesn’t even make it into this world.

Walker and Willis Myrick have supposed twin brothers who went on adventures together. One of them, though, didn’t make it to this world because of bad luck.

Willis had twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS) before the twins were born. This meant that she died in the womb.

Even though the two boys didn’t meet in this life, their mother, Brooke Davis, says they still have a special connection.

“That’s just how things go. She says, “I think he’ll always be close to his brother.”

The young boy would often dream about his twin brother, Willis. His parents would also take him to Willis’ grave, where he would talk to his dead brother. Davis would sometimes take photos of these heartwarming moments.

Walker went to his brother’s grave in 2012, when he was 5 years old and had just started Kindergarten. He leaned against the tombstone and told his brother about his first school day.

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

She says the little boy would be so happy to see his brother that he would jump out of the car before Davis did.

In a video made on Christmas 2016, he said, “I still think about my brother, and I know that he is always watching over me.”

Davis says that Walker’s relationship with Willis has given her peace and made it easier for her to deal with the loss of her child.

But Davis doesn’t ever want to forget about Willis. Every year on the twins’ birthday, their family plans “The Walker and Willis Birthday Walk,” which includes an auction and a T-shirt sale to raise money.

The event aims to spread the word about TTTS and give $2,500 to the TTTS Foundation annually. Davis also has advice for families who are going through what she went through with TTTS.

“I’d let them know that their kids will never leave them,” I’d say.

This is clear from the fact that Walker still thinks about and honors his twin brother, who died before he was born.

We are thinking of the family and wishing them luck as they try to raise money and awareness.
