Rumble / Heartwarming FamiliesA born and bred Canadian citizen, Mr. Esmond Allcock is 108-years-old and he was declared to be the oldest man in Canada. He lives in a care home but he is still quick-witted, talkative, and communicative. He has six children, 17 grandchildren, 12 great-great-grandchildren and 36 great-grandchildren. But over the years, none of his 71 descendants have been named after him – until now when his great-granddaughter Jenna Lehne named her second child after him.

The video shows when she introduces Mr. Esmond to his namesake. His face lights up with so much love and sunshine because his great-great-grandson shares the same name as him. As you can imagine Mr. Esmond is ecstatic holding his great-great-<a href="https://rumble.com/v30l2h-loving-grandson-visits-his-grandpa-in-hospital-before-prom.html" target="_blank">grandson</a> for the first time.

As he has this cute baby in his lap, we cannot clearly hear what he is muttering to him but we can see that he couldn’t be happier about it. This centenarian seems to really take joy in his family and descendants. His great-granddaughter did not forget to honor him in such an amazing way. There’s nothing more gratifying than to make somebody happy. And we know that old people are just like children, they rejoice at simple things and this is a great deal for this old man - he must be over the moon. Most people don't have any memories at all of their great-grandparents, so it's not surprising his great-<a href="https://rumble.com/v44021-grandma-gets-an-emotional-surprise-and-meets-new-granddaughter-for-the-firs.html" target="_blank">granddaughter</a> is feeling very privileged.

The video and pictures of Mr. Esmond holding his namesake have gone viral pretty fast, and everyone wishes this great man many more years to come. We should never forget to celebrate real-life stories of love and compassion like this one.
