Boy Says Goodbye to His Grandpa in His Own Way
Occurred on May 10, 2021 / West Covina, California, USA
Info from Licensor: "This is Sebastian he is 13 years old was born with Down Syndrome. I, shared the video with Steven last night. We recently lost my father-in-law to cancer. Not only did Sebastian lose his Grandpa but he lost someone who acknowledged him, loved, and cared for him very much. My husband reviewed the cameras last night and discovered my mother's day balloons had been sent to heaven with a message to Grandpa from Sebastian. When my father-in-law passed, I had bought 3 heart balloons to explain to my 2 younger sons that Grandpa is now in heaven with Mama (my mom) and Bear our sick puppy who had a medical condition and passed a few years ago. I told my boys that Grandpa was very sick, and sometimes sick people get better and other times they don't and they go to heaven. I presented them with the 3 balloons and told them that one was for Mama, one was Bear and the last one was for Grandpa because he is now in heaven. My son's understood that it meant that they will not be seeing Grandpa anymore. They hugged each balloon, kissed them, and identified the balloons to whom they were sending them up to. After watching the video last night, it broke our hearts, brought tears to our eyes. Our kiddo Sebastian doesn't have much vocabulary and he tends to have selected mutism. His actions were very clear that he is hurting and missing his Grandpa and that he does understand that he has passed."
