There isn’t a relative in a person’s life quite like a grandparent. When we are little, they can often impose the role of a mediator between us and our parents on themselves, which made us love them even more. “I love grandma more than you!” is a sentence more of us have ever said than we would like to admit it.

They have taught us things that only grandparents can teach, lessons that stick with us long after they are gone and we remember them with utter joy. When they grow old and frail, it is to us to make them feel like they will never fall out of line of sight and from our hearts.

When this man’s grandma turned 98, she was already too frail to stand and became bedridden. But her grandson wanted to remind her of times that they both cherish so deeply, so he threw her a surprise for her almost-centennial birthday. Grandma taught him ‘Unforgettable’ by Nat King Cole when he was a boy, so he celebrated each birthday with her singing on the phone.

This year, he decided that it was high time he sang for her in person, since she lost her singing voice years ago.

Watching the old lady getting moved to tears by her grandson’s touching gesture made everyone who watched the clip sob along. We hope you have plenty of tissues lying around.
