Reddit Helps Man Retrieve Late Wife’s Songs Sung For Their Newborn

International News, News

Sharry Buhanan-Decker, an amateur singer-songwriter, had recorded a few songs in anticipation of her first child. She and her husband Jared eagerly awaited the arrival of their child. But little did Sharry know that she wouldn’t be able to see the face of her son. And little did Jared know that he would be sandwiched between the joy of his son’s arrival to the world and his wife’s departure from it.

Sharry died in June this year from a suspected amniotic fluid embolism during childbirth. Doctors performed an emergency C-section and saved her son, JJ.  Sharry was only 29. Few weeks later, Jared found some of her recordings on her laptop but he had no idea how to play or use the file format they were saved in. Desperate, he turned to Reddit for help.

“My wife recently died during the childbirth of our first baby, needless to say life has been hell the last two months. She dabbled in writing and recording songs – nothing professional of course – but very important to me. I found her backups … I just want to be able to hear her voice again,” Jared wrote.

Reddit users jumped to his rescue and soon Jared was able to enjoy Sharry’s recordings. “I was blown away by the kindness of complete strangers. I obviously wish I didn’t need it, but tragedies can really bring out the love and compassion in everyone,” Said Jared. He now listens to Sharry’s songs with JJ, their little son.
