A video of a little boy singing a song in memory of his sister has gone viral on Twitter.
Samir Deais from San Antonio, Texas, shared a short clip of his 4-year-old son singing in front of an alter on New Year’s Eve.
My son singing “Remember Me” from the movie “Coco” to his baby sister, Ava, who we lost this past May.
He’s only 4 years old and he understands. He didn’t even know he was being recorded. He just wanted to sing to her for her 1st birthday!
Happy Birthday mamas, we miss you!💕 pic.twitter.com/EoVLjju0bJ
