Choosing a gift for your loved ones is never easy. And if it’s on an occasion like Christmas, its bound to be extra special. But what two daughters did for their father has left people emotional online. Melia Tinnin, from Winston-Salem in North Carolina along with her sister gifted her dad a teddy bear for Christmas, nothing extraordinary, right? But the soft-toy had the recording of his late mother’s voice. Hearing it on Christmas day after opening the present, he broke down and the moving scene was captured on camera and now the video is going viral.
In the video, which has been viewed over 6 million times, at the time of writing, he can be heard being told to ‘press a button’ on it.

This made me straight up cry, if I had the same from my mom mom I’d be the same. I still have a random letter she wrote because it’s her handwriting. ❤️

I was in tears. Blatantly. I can imagine being in that situation, and I dont want to lose my parents. We take them for granted too much! We must appreciate them much more! 😢

I still have my old phone plugged in because it has my uncle’s last message to me from 2010.

The best gifts come from the heart. The best gift came from heaven.
