It's been a year since a two-year-old Lincoln boy died. Now, his family wants to remember him with a special request.

"There's obviously still the hard days where you remember and you have the memories," Jennifer Baker said.

Holding back tears and a picture of her little boy, Baker still wonders what happened exactly one year ago. That's when two-year-old Axton Nolte fell asleep for an afternoon nap and never woke up.
 
"That's kind of when it all shattered."

Now, to remember their son and his contagious smile, they're asking people to "pay it forward" Wednesday, or simply do something good for someone else

"That's what Axton would've wanted. He would want people to be happy and smile. And it'll bring good things back to you and you'll feel great about it," Baker said.

And they'd like for you to share what you've done with the community. To do so, they've set up a Facebook event, it's called "Honoring Axton Alexander Nolte." It's public and they're encouraging you to share your story of how you helped to make someone's day a little better.
 
"The one thing that my son taught me was compassion and empathy for other people I think that's the best thing he taught me," Axton's father Wade Nolte said.

Through your compassion, the family says not only will you bring a smile to others, but also to Axton. 
  
Now as far as what led to Axton's death, doctors believe it may have been a medical condition.
As the family continues to heal, they'll soon welcome a baby girl in June. She's expected one day after Axton's birthday.
