The death of their beloved father was a big tragedy for Chandler and Johnathon Crow. They loved him so much and shared so many things together.

16-year-old Johnny was heartbroken and felt into a depression. To cope with his grief, the teenager who had always loved music started playing guitar all days long. His dad had always believed Johnny would become a great musician and was proud of his abilities. He encouraged the guy to take guitar lessons, and he did… Johnny`s older sister, Chandler tried to support her brother and would often take him to his guitar instructor. One day, the young woman was greatly surprised:

"About a month ago I dropped Johnny off at his guitar lesson, and one of the amazing instructors told me there was something I should see. When she showed me, I just dropped to my knees, I just couldn’t believe it," she says.

The music teacher showed her an amazing guitar their dad bought for Johnny several months before he passed away.

"But I had to keep it a secret until his birthday.

So this morning I woke up and picked up my brother from school and blindfolded him.


Drove him to the music center and this is the outcome. A big thank you goes out to the music center, who helped keep my dad’s dream alive.

Happy 16th birthday buddy. Dad is so proud of you. I love you more than words can describe."

Chandler recorded her brother`s bittersweet reaction. Watch this beautiful video below. Let it be a reminder to care for your loved ones while they are still there and cherish the memories after they’re gone.
