This Video Of A Mother Receiving A Teddy Bear With Her Departed Son's Voice Has Everyone Sobbing

China Lake police officer, Sean Tanner, died in October of 2018.

This is his family's first Christmas without him. In a viral video, his mother is seen receiving a touching gift in his memory from his older sister.


Brittany Garcia made her mother a Build-A-Bear dressed as a police officer. In the video she posted to Twitter, you can see her mom's reaction to receiving the stuffed toy.

It's enough to make you cry.




But it wasn't just a bear dressed in Tanner's profession. Garcia had put a recording of her late brother's voice in the bear so it speaks when you squeeze the hand.

The recording says:

"Officer Tanner, about to get no sleep for the first time. I'm feeling good."

Excuse us, we'll be over here crying.





The video has been liked hundreds of thousands of times, with thousands of comments and retweets.

Garcia was surprised at the reaction her video received.

"I am completely overwhelmed by the reaction to the video I posted. The outpouring of love and support is something else and my family is beyond thankful."

She clarified that her brother worked for the China Lake Police Department, he did not die in the line of duty.

She also had to address criticism over her choice of gift.

She wrote:

"My family has a need to hear his voice, it's not ripping open a wound (like people have said) because our wound hasn't closed and probably never will."
"My mom LOVES her gift!"





This isn't the only viral video of a child's gift making their parents cry this Christmas.

Brady Singer, pitcher for the Kansas City Royals shared his own video showing his parents reaction after he paid off all their debt. He surprised his parents with the news on Christmas in a letter he wrote thanking them for supporting him.

The old saying is "it's the thought that counts." Clearly a lot of thought went into these loving gifts.

I don't see the appeal of these rooms.

Why would one enjoy being trapped in a room?

When you watch people trapped in a movie you cheer for their release.

But this activity has gotten super popular.

And people have gotten real creative in their escapes.

Redditor CaptainCatButt wanted to hear confessions from the great escapes. They asked:

"Escape Room employees, what's the weirdest way you've seen customers try and solve an escape room?"

Much of the nation continues to reel from the news that a leaked draft opinion indicated the Supreme Court's ruling on Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization will move to strike down Roe v. Wade, the 1973 landmark decision that protects a person's right to choose reproductive healthcare without excessive government restriction.

Many people remember what it was like in the days before women could seek an abortion; many innocent women died in the absence of proper medical care or were forced to birth children they could not afford, trapping them in poverty.

But could a ruling overturning Roe v. Wade signal the loss of other rights in the future, especially those decided on the right to privacy, on which Roe was hinged?

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor thisiscubes asked the online community,

"Americans of Reddit, what are your thoughts on Roe v. Wade being overturned by SCOTUS as per draft reports?"
