Mother of fallen officer gets teddy bear with his voice for Christmas

Jan. 13, 2019– Mary Greeley News – UNDATED (WKRC) – A video of a mother opening up her Christmas gift is getting a lot of social media attention, and it is easy to see why.

The touching and poignant video features a mom whose son, a police officer, passed away in October. His name was Sean Tanner.

The gift? A teddy bear wearing a police uniform. It’s a build-a-bear with a very unique and special surprise.

When you press the bear’s hand, a recording plays. It’s Sean’s voice. His sister, Brittany, came up with the idea for their mother.

In a separate Tweet, Garcia wrote that every family grieves differently, and this was their way of dealing with this death.

“My family has a need to hear his voice,” Garcia said, “it’s not ripping open a wound because our wound hasn’t closed and probably never will.”

After ensuring that her mother loves the gift, Garcia’s video has now gone viral, being viewed over 6 million times.

“The outpouring of love and support is something else, and my family is beyond thankful,” Garcia wrote.
