On Thursday, Otis published a blog post about the devastating loss.
“My heart is so heavy,” she wrote. “There are no words to express the pain and sorrow associated with losing our baby Hehner.”
She continued: “He was given to us so graciously by God, and then God took him away way too early. My heart hurts so bad. Losing our baby has been the most terrible experience. I wish no one would ever have to endure this.”
