Losing a loved one is never easy, no matter what their age. And Lauren has been grieving for her Nana since she died from surgery complications just two days after Christmas. Lauren's been dealing with her own health issues, so when her best friend, Carly, popped in, Lauren was happy to see her.
What she never expected was to hear her Nana's voice from beyond the grave. "What's her name?" asks Carly.
That's when Lauren starts to cry. "Babbylicious. That's my Nana's nickname." The bear, wearing a red dress - her Nana's favorite color - held another secret. When Lauren pressed the bear's hand, Nana's voice spoke clearly, "Love you, bye."
Grieving isn't suppose to be easy, but receiving a gift as precious as this definitely eases some of the pain. You're an incredible friend, Carly. And you did an incredibly kind thing.
