Posted online by a Twitter with user handle jenn, this video recently went viral online and broke the hearts of countless netizens.
The short clip features two girls receiving their gifts for Christmas. When they open their respective gifts, they were glad to get brown teddy bears which, to their surprise, had the voice recording of their late grandfather.
As jenn shared on her Twitter post:
“So my grandpa passed away tragically about a year ago and my aunt got my sisters a teddy bear that has a recording of my grandpa’s voice.”

How Do I Help My Child Deal With The Death Of A Loved One?
“When a loved one dies, children feel and show their grief in different ways. How kids cope with the loss depends on things like their age, how close they felt to the person who died, and the support they receive,” the KidsHealth website tells us.
The site further encourages parents:
“To break the news that someone has died, approach your child in a caring way. Use words that are simple and direct. For example, ‘I have some sad news to tell you. Grandma died today.’ Pause to give your child a moment to take in your words…
“Every child reacts differently to learning that a loved one has died. Some kids cry. Some ask questions. Others seem not to react at all. That’s OK. Stay with your child to offer hugs or reassurance. Answer your child’s questions or just be together for a few minutes…
“Encourage kids to say what they’re thinking and feeling in the days, weeks, and months following the loss. Talk about your own feelings: It helps kids be aware of and feel comfortable with theirs. Say things like, ‘I know you’re feeling very sad. I’m sad, too. We both loved Grandma so much, and she loved us, too.'”
