This video will make you believe that, sometimes, spirits visit the Earth to say goodbye to their loved ones before they go to wherever spirits and souls go after dying.
Shared on Facebook by Joy Ganda Vibar-Alamares, the grieving mother of the child whose casket could be seen in the background, the video starts with a shot of the balloon floating close to the child’s coffin. As if held by some unseen forces, the white balloon begins to move towards the mother who was crying at the time.
While there are those who claim that the balloon was merely floating around because it does not have enough helium to float upwards, it could not be argued that the mere fact that it moved towards the crying mommy while there are lots of other people in the room could be a sign that the action was not merely work of the wind or the lack of helium.
Can balloons hug people? Well, this one did! When it stopped right beside the grieving mom, it tried to move as close to the woman as possible; then, it appeared to encircle her by moving from her right shoulder to her left shoulder.
This video really gave me goosebumps! It was a bittersweet moment for this mommy and the balloon which could have easily been guided by the spirit of her dead child… What do you think of this video?
It’s been 40 days baby since ng bakasyon mo with papa god, miss na miss kana ni mamy ? thank u for the hugs and kisses, for the pure sincere genuine LOVE ? i love you sobra damok mamy, alam mo yan ??? #hastalavista#onelastHUG

While white balloons are often associated with weddings, there are also a lot of people who choose to release white balloons during funerals or place some during their beloved family member’s wake. Often, the release of the white balloons during funerals is done as a final tribute for the departed loved one.
The actual release often helps those who are grieving to begin the healing process.
While white balloons are the norm, there are also many families who choose colorful ones, especially if the departed one is a child.
