Teen overcome with emotion after surprise birthday gift from his late father

The first birthday after losing a loved one is always tough. All we can do is hold tight to the memories … and, in the case of one Michigan family, a little something more.

Johnny Crow turned 16 on earlier this month. The last person he likely expected to receive a gift from was his father, John, who had passed away unexpectedly in April.

But Johnny’s loving father had planned ahead — and his big surprise came instead via Johnny’s sister, Chandler Mae Crow.
