ST. GEORGE, Utah—A St. George man is crediting the kindness of strangers on the internet for helping him discover a way to keep his wife’s memory alive.

Jared Buhanan-Decker tells the Deseret News that he has been trying for the last few months to preserve wife Sharry’s memory for the sake of their infant son.

Sharry Buhanan-Decker died in June after having an emergency cesarean section.

Buhanan-Decker says he recently found old video files of his wife singing on her computer but couldn’t play them.

He posted about his predicament on the website Reddit and was stunned by the response.

Buhanan-Decker says dozens of strangers sent him back the files but fixed. Some just wanted to offer well-wishes.

He now has the files on repeat for him and son JJ.
