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

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.

Some people are far more conscious of their health than others.

Be it out of obligation or self-interest, many people make a point of avoiding certain foods and products, and partaking in extreme diets and exercise plans.

Which doesn't mean they avoid unhealthy habits or products altogether.

Indeed, all of us are probably unaware that we all likely partake in eating food, using products, or even performing what might seem like everyday activities which could be harmful to our health.

Be it by happenstance or obligation.

I'm always stunned by bad parenting.

And I see it far too often.

People need a license to drive.

A license to fish.

But having kids?

Let anybody do it. Sure.

So many kids deserve better.

CW: Suicide.

Finding a dead body is one of my worst fears.

The only one I've ever found was my grandma's.

She was dying of cancer so it wasn't horrific.

Blood makes me faint, so any horrific scenes will not go well for me.
