One of the most visible, and by far cutest, social media stars of Bernie Sanders's campaign was Oliver Jack Carter Lomas-Davis, better known on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter as the "Bernie Baby."

Sadly, the cute internet star died on Feb. 25 at just 4 months old, of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.

SIDS (or "crib death") is the leading cause of death among children ages 1 month to 1 year old, and results in approximately 2,500 fatalities annually in the U.S.

A GoFundMe account has been set up to help the family with the cost of a memorial service and burial.
