'I love you darling': Grandma breaks down after hearing late husband's voice coming from teddy bear
Chloe Boyle had her grandfather's voice recorded into the teddy to surprise her grandmother on their anniversary
In a heartwarming video, a woman is seen receiving a toy from her granddaughter but wasn't expecting the pleasant surprise awaiting her. In the clip shared on social media by 17-year-old Chloe Boyle from Livingston in Scotland, her grandmother, Elaine Galloway, can be seen opening up a package to pull out a teddy bear.
Galloway presses the teddy's hand when Boyle asks her to, and is immediately taken aback when the voice of the toy appeared to be that of her late husband, Archie, who died almost three years ago.
Her late husband's voice is heard saying: "Hello my darling, I love you darling.
On hearing the recording she immediately breaks into tears, although she keeps playing the recording. Chloe, who recorded her grandfather's voice into the Build-A-Bear teddy for the anniversary of her grandparents, captioned the post: "Got my gran a build-a-bear with my papa's voice in it for there anniversary, grandparents mean the absolute world. A big happy anniversary to you and papa, I love you both more than you will ever know❤️❤️".
