When Brittany Garcia’s brother Sean Tanner passed away last year, she told FOX 8 she knew she had to do something to honor him this Christmas. Brittany was aware that her mother would be particularly hard pressed to cope with the loss.
Brittany recorded her mother’s reaction when she gave her a special gift to celebrate the importance Sean still has in their lives. Brittany’s mother breaks down in tears when she realizes the gift is a policeman in the form of a uniformed bear. Because Sean was a police officer, it was a perfect tribute to his dedication to service.
But the gift is getting better. When Brittany’s mother shakes a bear’s paw, Shaun’s recording begins to speak across the room. Naturally, this revelation affected the whole family.
Many people were touched by the emotion of the video. The video has been viewed by over six million people and retweeted thousands of times.
Although Sean was not killed in the line of duty, his life as a police officer still took center stage even after his death. This cute bear is just another example.
