The best surprises in life are the ones that show how much our loved ones care for us. For this 16-year-old boy, the surprise gift from his father is all the more poignant because his father arranged it before he died.
The touching video opens with Jonny at a music store. He’s not sure why his family brought him there, but he’s about to receive a gift he will cherish forever.
Jonny’s sister revealed the story behind the birthday surprise, writing:
“So today is my little brothers 16th birthday, and his first birthday without our dad. But, dad was always filled with surprises. About a month ago, I dropped J off at his guitar lesson, and one of the amazing instructors told me there was something I should see. When she showed me I just dropped to my knees, I just couldn’t believe it. But I had to keep it a secret until his birthday.”
“So this morning I woke up and picked up my brother from school and blindfolded him. Drove him to the music center and this is the outcome. A big thank you goes out to the music center, who helped keep my dads dream alive.”
“Edit: I didn’t film this but I still apologize for the vertical video and rotating camera!”
Share this heartbreakingly beautiful moment with your friends and family.
