Woman breaks down after receiving Build-a-Bear with her deceased husband’s laugh


A mother got a one-of-a-kind birthday present in a heart-wrenching new viral video.

The clip surfaced on Reddit yesterday with the caption, “She was married to her husband for 32 years when cancer took him away, so her kids got her bear with his laugh.” The woman’s children encourage her to squeeze the head of her personalized Build-a-Bear, decked out in a plaid shirt, jeans, boots, and a cowboy hat. As soon as she hears her husband’s laugh, she breaks into tears.

The video has amassed 180,000 views, and with good reason. It’s proof that people still act with compassion in this world. Just make sure you have a box of tissues handy before you watch.
