There’s just something special about great grandparents and babies don’t you think? You don’t want to miss this incredibly precious moment as a great, great, grandfather meets a baby girl days before he passes away.
in this video, the family who was recently blessed with the birth of a baby girl they named Cadance gets to meet and be held by her great, great, grandfather. In a matter of seconds, this video sums up our life journey–as one person is on the threshold of leaving this world, while another has her whole life before her.
Cadance’s parents really wanted her to get to know her precious great, great grandfather because they knew his time on this earth was short and they wanted to record a video so she could have it in the years to come. Under the video, her parents wrote that he had finally awakened after being asleep for quite some time. They added, “First time she has met him. He woke up and wanted her to sit with him. It was so precious. We may not have him much longer and I want her to have something to remember him by.”
And this video is absolutely precious as she rests in his arms and looks up in admiration at her great, great grandad. In fact, it is so sweet, the video went viral with over 8,116,972 views! Hearts melted and viewers gushed online, one viewer commented, “Heart melting moment. I could feel tears in my eyes.” Another viewer added, “That is so awesome, two angels meeting on earth before one goes back to GOD.” While another posted, “What a blessing..so beautiful. “Ending with a new beginning.”
Shortly after this was posted, this precious great granddad stepped over the threshold and into Jesus’ arms. We are so thankful for the time he had with Cadance and we hope she will appreciate this video as much as we did.
