Moving moment woman hears late husband’s voice coming from toy bear gift from granddaughter

VIDEO of a grandmother receiving a toy bear which she then realises plays a recording of her late husband’s voice has left the internet in tears.

Chloe Boyle filmed as her gran Elaine Galloway opened a box containing the bear and is told to press the paw.

On hearing the recording she immediately dissolves into tears and tries to hide her face behind the toy realising the voice is of her late husband, Archie, who passed away almost three years ago at the age of 65.

Chloe, 17, from Livingston, West Lothian, bought the Build-A-Bear for the anniversary of her grandparents, who lived nearby.

After posting the clip online Tuesday night she received hundreds of reactions from viewers, many of whom say it reduced them to tears.

Chloe from Livingston posted the video on twitter and wrote: “Got my gran a build-a-bear with my papas voice in it for their anniversary, so special grandparents mean the absolute world”.

The video shows Elaine, 67, opening the box and picking up a build-a-bear from inside it.

Elaine surprised by the gift can be heard saying “oh for goodness sake” as she gazes upon her new gift.

Chloe then tells her gran to “press its hand” as Elaine’s dog Misty appears in shot by Elaine’s side.

After pressing the hand a recording comes from the bear which is believed to be from a video when Archie was in hospital.

Elaine was shocked to hear Archie’s voice come from the bear

Archie can be heard saying: “Hello my darling, I love you darling”. When Elaine hears this she immediately cradles the bear close towards her and begins to cry.

The touching moment is shared with her dog who jumps up on her lap to comfort her.

After a moment of silence Elaine again presses the hand and plays the message. This time her dog stretches up to the bear to sniff it as it recognises the voice.
