In 2013, the Riggs family suffered the loss of their third child and only son, Leo to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). Angela began writing letters to Leo the day after he passed away as a way to stay connected to him. Through these letters Angela has been able to freely express her grief, fear, hope, faith, and connect with others who have been through or have loved ones who have experienced loss. She invites you to read her letters on her blog SurvivingSIDS.
