Walker and Willis Myrick were meant to be twin brothers who would spend their life together. However, unfortunately, one of them did not make it into the world. Willis succumbed to twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS) before the twins were born, and so ceased to exist while in the womb. Even though the two boys never met, they have a particular bond, according to mother Brooke Myrick.

She told TODAY, "It's just one of those things. truly believe he’ll always have a connection with his brother." Walker frequently visits his brother's grave, informing him about school or his other siblings.

She takes photographs of Walker visiting the grave and posts them on Facebook, just like she did a few years back when Walker had just finished his first day of kindergarten and wanted to talk to his brother about it.
