Watch: Jon Schmidt and His Wife Share the Blessings of Mourning with Those Who Mourn in #LightTheWorld Video

"I had never felt that kind of distress before," says Jon Schmidt, a member of the Piano Guys, in the Day 12 #LightTheWorld video. "It's a weight that would crush you."

"Mourn with those that mourn" is the day 12 challenge of the #LightTheWorld campaign, and after losing their daughter Annie in a hiking accident last year, it's something Jon and his family are well acquainted with. In fact, it was a blessing. 

"To have people mourn with you, to be sad with you--you knew that there were those that cared," Jon's wife, Michelle Schmidt, shares.
