Jennifer, Mariana, and Sarahy Ramos tragically lost their grandfather, Florencio Jimenez, over a year ago when he died of a stroke during a robbery at a car wash he was at. His granddaughters were very close to him, so this year their aunt surprised them with a little piece of their grandpa that they could hold onto forever. Sixteen-year-old Jennifer took to Twitter to post a video of her two younger sisters opening up seemingly ordinary Build-a-Bears on Christmas Eve, and the internet collectively weeped over the clip.
In the video, Mariana opens her bear first, and after being prompted to squeeze the bear's hand she hears the voice and laugh of her beloved grandfather come out of the stuffed toy, which causes her to immediately start sobbing. Sarahy then pushes the button in the hand of her bear and hears another recording of his voice, and similarly breaks down. Needless to say, these sweet bears were a silver lining to a Christmas without Jimenez for his adorable granddaughters.
