“My grandpa passed away tragically about a year ago.”
Jennifer Ramos’ grandpa, Florencio Jimenez, tragically passed away a year ago after he suffered a stroke while being robbed at a car wash. To honor his memory, Ramos’ aunt Andrea came up with a special Christmas gift for Ramos’s two younger sisters, Sarahy and Mariana.
Andrea gave the girls teddy bears with the voice of their late grandpa.
Ramos captured the touching moment her sisters opened their presents and posted the video on Twitter. The video shows the girls unwrapping their bears and hearing the audio messages from their grandpa and his laugh.
