Okay, grab some tissues. (Seriously, grab some.)
4-year-old Alex from San Antonio, Texas just went viral after his mom shared a video of him singing "Remember Me" from Disney's Coco to a picture of his late little sister, Ava Lynn.
Ava Lynn died in May of 2017 after being diagnosed with a kidney condition known as hydronephrosis, so Alex made sure to honor her on what would have been her first birthday.
My son singing "Remember Me" from the movie "Coco" to his baby sister, Ava, who we lost this past May.— Samir (@SAM1R) December 31, 2017
He's only 4 years old and he understands. He didn't even know he was being recorded. He just wanted to sing to her for her 1st birthday!
Happy Birthday mamas, we miss you!💕 pic.twitter.com/EoVLjju0bJ
Alex's dad, Samir, said that watching Coco -- a film that focuses on the tradition of Diá de los Muertos -- helped Alex cope with Ava's passing. "He started to ask more accurate and direct questions, and using Coco as a reference was a huge help," said Samir.
I don't know about you, but I'm an emotional wreck right now.

Alex got to come with us to see Ava today. It's hard to cope with loss and handle grief. It overwhelms me,confuses me and frustrates me everyday. Teaching Alex how to feel these things and not let them become who you are but always acknowledging what you are feeling is hard to do. Most days I don't want to acknowledge it myself. But im proud of him. No one is teaching us how to parent to a child no longer here physically and no child should have a sibling in heaven,but we will over come as a family.all 5 of us❤
