Tran Ferguson did not share any details about her son’s death, but she spoke candidly about her unwavering grief after losing her only child.
The grieving mother recalled how Asher would clap, dance and stick out his tongue when he laughed, saying he “always knew how to make everyone smile.”
‘My heart is completely broken and shattered into a million pieces. I will never understand why, nothing makes sense, I’m still in shock, I just want to wake up from this unimaginable nightmare and have you in my arms again. Why is this happening to us, why Asher? she wrote.
‘You didn’t deserve any of this. Losing you is the hardest experience mom and dad have ever had to endure. Every day has been torture without you, this pain is unbearable. I still feel like you’re going to reappear, but our house is so quiet and empty without you. A part of me has died with you. I am so heartbroken, with no idea how to live a life without you.
Tran Ferguson explained how much Asher was loved by his family and friends, saying that his absence from home haunts her.
“I can’t stop seeing your big smile everywhere I go, I hear your giggle and babble all day and it breaks my heart that you’re not physically here,” she said. Your room is empty, your things intact. There is no pain that can compare to the loss of a child and I can’t believe it happened to us.”
The mother shared that she would give anything to go back in time and take her son’s place if she could.
‘I miss running my hands through all your hair, biting your chubby little feet, but most of all I so long for your hugs and kisses!! I pray that I can see you in my dreams every night. I just want you to come back so bad, but you’re never coming home and it’s killing me,” she continued.
‘We feel so lost without you and we miss you so much. I prayed for the miracle, for YOU to be the miracle, for you to come back to us. My heart aches for you every second,” she said. ‘It will never be forgotten. We’ll take you wherever we go. We love you so much my sweet boy, I pray to see you soon.
The grieving mom’s announcement comes two weeks after she revealed that Asher was “fighting for his life in ICU.”

She opened up about her traumatic birth on Instagram, saying she had to have an emergency C-section.
“The doctor told us that she had the cord around her neck, so when the contractions happened it would tighten around her neck, causing her heart rate to drop. I am so glad our amazing doctors delivered him safely,” he wrote.
“It took a while before I was finally able to hold him once he was in the recovery room. I couldn’t believe it, he is FINALLY HERE in my arms! I feel so blessed and lucky to be your mother and understand what everyone has told me. There is no love like this.
