Family Donates Sandbox in Son's Memory

Posted: Updated:

The memory of a two year old hit and killed by a car exactly one year ago will live on for years after his family donated a sandbox to his hometown's elementary school.

Carter Barron was killed after a car backed into him in his driveway last year on June 17.

Today, his parents installed a pirate themed sandbox at Marion elementary in his honor.

The wooden ship was built by Mod Art in Cadillac and was an instant hit among the kids, exactly what his mother was hoping when she came up with the idea.
