A parent should never have to bury a child. But things don’t always go according to plan (our plan, anyway), and life works in mysterious ways. The best you can do is pick up the pieces and try to move on and hold onto the memories that were most important to you…
In the video below, we see 85-year-old Winifred who has been having a hard time ever since her daughter, Barbara, passed away about a year ago unexpectedly. So her granddaughter, Billie, came up with the perfect idea for a gift to give Winifred on her birthday this year.
Billie remembered that during the pandemic, family members had recorded video messages to send to Grandma wishing her a happy birthday. So she took Barbara’s audio and headed to Build-A-Bear to do something special.
Now any time Grandma Winifred wants to her the voice of her late daughter, she can do so with the press of a button on the teddy’s paw. It takes her a moment to figure out what exactly she’s looking at and hearing upon opening her gift, but when it all comes together, her reaction is everything they’d hoped it’d be. You have to see it for yourself — Grab the tissues!
