CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) - A southeast Missouri woman is channeling her grief to help others.

The Southeast Missourian (https://bit.ly/1xXBg99 ) reports that Laura Schumpert of Cape Girardeau lost her 2-year-old son, Lyndon, and her 28-year-old husband, Jarred, in a car accident in December in Texas.

Rather than monetary donations or flowers, she asked people to donate toys to three organizations, specifically Spider-Man toys.

On Friday, she delivered toys and a play kitchen set to the pediatric unit of HealthPoint Rehab in Cape Girardeau. Lyndon was autistic and received therapy at HealthPoint.
