Last year, Molly Preston celebrated Jovi’s birthday by thanking the first responders and doctors who helped her the day that she found her daughter dead in her crib after laying her down for a nap. Preston brought them cookies, but this year she wants to honor her daughter’s short life on a grander scale.
