If a family member dies, there is no way to fill the void, especially when the person was too young. So when a woman lost her husband, her sister knew she couldn’t mend her broken heart, but she helped keep his memory alive through her newborn son’s name.

Abby Lever, a young mother of two, was widowed when her 29-year-old husband, Ewen Lever, died in a car crash on December 9, 2020.
“He was my everything, and he was our world,” Abby told BBC. “[He was] loved life and was the largest character and voice of any room. He truly is one in a million and loved by so many. He will be sorely missed by his wife, babies, family, and friends.”
Just over four years later, Abby’s sister, Laura, went into labor with her “blended” family’s seventh child, a boy, and Abby was right by her as a birthing partner.
What Laura didn’t tell her sister was that she had already picked out a name for her son—Clay Ewen Hoffman—after her late husband. Instead, she waited until Abby could meet Clay and then give her a special reveal.
Laura caught the reveal on camera and posted it to her TikTok. It shows Abby holding Clay and memorizing his face as he sleeps. Abby is holding a round name card in her hand, and Laura tells her to turn it around to see her newborn nephew’s full name.
Abby glances at the name and looks back at Clay before realizing what is happening. She quickly looks back at the name and begins to cry. It isn’t long before Laura joins with her own tears.
Be sure to share this special moment with your friends.
