This is the sad story of Kevin, a boy who says goodbye but did not want to say it, and a mother who gives her last kiss.

After 41 days of suffering from a bite of a violinist spider, little Kevin had to say goodbye to his family and friends.

The Debate reports that Kevin was stung by a spider on July 14 and received medical attention, but the efforts they made for this cure were not successful, leading to the death of the child.

However, despite the fact that these laboratories made every human effort to save this little boy's life, when they gave the antidote to Kevin, his body had already been suffering the damages of the bite and it was too late.

"Very sad, because it leaves us marked in our life trajectory because we had never seen this case and truth is it is very sad. I come because I have a child and I realize that this reflects me," said Jasmine Partida, a member of the boy’s community.

This small white coffin was moved in a white van, with blue details, for its final resting place.

In the tradition of this family, children should not be mourned, but rather be honored with white balloons, and with great pain in their hearts, their loved ones gave the last goodbye.
