A couple turned a grieving mother’s painful reminder into a beautiful memorial.

Valerie Watts was having a hard time letting go of her son’s crib after he was delivered stillborn. She later agreed to sell it in a garage sale.

A woman at the garage sale approached Watts, where she learned of the tragedy.

"[She] was there looking through my garage sale at some of the baby clothes and asked how old my son was, since I don't use the crib anymore and the clothes were little. And I told her that he had passed in July," Watts said.

The woman and her husband Gerald Kumpula purchased the crib, deciding to return it to the grieving mother in a new form.

Kumpula converted the crib into a beautiful memorial bench and returned it to Watts two weeks after the garage sale.

Watts said the random act of kindness proves that there are good people in the world.
