21-year-old Heidi Paat may have just dropped the mic on the best gift ever and social media has been weeping with happy tears ever since.
It’s been harder for Paat to spend time with her two besties, Vanessa Mendoza and Norma Bates, now that she’s away at college. What’s more, over the two years that she’s been away, each of her friends have lost a parent. This left Paat feeling bad about her inability to physically be there for them as much as she would like.
So, when Paat came home to celebrate her friends’ belated birthdays, she decided to do something extra special. She went to Build-A-Bear and created personalized teddy bears with voice recordings from each of her friends’ late parents.
“I thought something that they’d love could be something related to their parents because I know how much they miss them,” Paat told BuzzFeed News.
For the bears, Paat was able to find and include audio clips of Bate’s mother singing “Happy Birthday” and Mendoza’s dad telling her how pretty she is.
"I broke down and cried… I hadn’t heard her voice in a long time," Bates told Buzzfeed News. "And I don't really ever cry."
Obvi, the Internet was deeply touched:
Right there with you guys.
