There's no pain quite like the kind that comes with the loss of a parent, no matter how old you are when it happens. It seems impossible to say goodbye to someone who played such a big part of your life since you were born, and moving on without them seems just as impossible. How do you live without a parent who's always been there for you?
It's undoubtedly a difficult time, but having understanding loved ones who know how to help around you can make such a big difference .That certainly seems to be the case for the woman in a video that's going viral on TikTok for receiving a truly unforgettable gift in the months after losing her parents.

In the video, we can see a woman opening a gift that turns out to be the restoration of a photo of her parents from when they were young. They look so happy in the silly picture, and after seeing this woman's reaction when she opened her gift, it's easy to see how meaningful it really is.
The picture went from a sepia tone to colorized, making it even more real for her. There were instant tears as soon as she saw it (and if you felt a little emotional watching this, you aren't the only one).
So many commenters had such sweet things to say about this moment. "That’s a fantastic photo of her beloved parents. Just beautiful," one person wrote.
Another added, "Fantastic photo. And fantastic coloring. Looks like it was taken yesterday."
This is a gift she'll treasure forever. It's not the same as having her parents there with her, but a great reminder of them she can see every day.
