When his newborn infant was placed in his arms, a father dying of lung disease received his final desire. The next day, the father died.
Christopher Stone, 48, of Vance, Alabama, died on April 25 after a long struggle with pulmonary fibrosis. Brandi, his six-year-old partner, had just been induced the day before. She gave birth to a son, Christopher Coy, who was named after his father.
“I held my son, I kissed my wife, God is so good,” he allegedly wrote on a pad given by his family to articulate what he couldn't say.
Chris had spent his whole life working in masonry and had amassed a large number of acquaintances, according to his family. He developed pulmonary fibrosis, emphysema, and pulmonary hypertension as a result of inhaling the silica. “The strain on his lungs took out his heart, too,” Lillie said.
“Can you imagine being nine months pregnant and sleeping next to your husband in a hospital chair every night? ” Chris’s daughter Gracie marveled. “She was the one who did it.”
Gracie thanked her father for his unconditional love and unwavering support in a Facebook eulogy, hoping he could have lived to see Coy grow up, his son Kolby graduate, and Lillie marry.
“But this I know,” she continued, “I was blessed to be his, and for him to be mine... He taught me what true love is.”
Brandi shared their final text messages to each other on Facebook five days after her husband died.
“I didn't choose you, baby. Chris wrote, "God did." “That is why our love is perfect and will never die.”
