It’s become almost a daily ritual for Jackie Foschi, walking through the garden located in the front yard of her home, named after her son Hudson.

“So, this is Hudson’s memorial garden. We transformed it,” the Virginia mother explains. “It’s a time for my mind to be quiet. It’s peaceful for me. That’s why I did it.”

On Jan. 8, 2019, a tragic accident happened where the garden now grows, originally the driveway.
