(CBS News/AP) - An eastern Michigan teenager whose father recently passed away has received a surprise birthday gift from him posthumously, CBS Detroit reports.
Heartbreaking video footage shows 16-year-old Johnny Crow tearfully accepting a Dean Razorback guitar from the Port Huron Music Center as a birthday gift from his father, John.
Crow died at the age of 49 after a heart attack in April.
The music center's owner, Pete Kruse, says Crow ordered the guitar in January for his son. About a month ago, Kruse contacted Johnny's 20-year-old sister, Chandler Mae, about the gift.
"When she showed me I just dropped to my knees, I just couldn't believe it," she wrote on Facebook. "But I had to keep it a secret until his birthday."
She captured footage of the birthday surprise, and shared it on social media. The video has been viewed more than 6 million times on Facebook.
Johnny says the supportive messages and shared stories of grief have helped him cope with the loss of his father.
