US man gets emotional after receiving crystal heart with deceased mum's picture for his birthday

A young man couldn’t hold his tears back when his girlfriend surprised him with a very special gift for his birthday: a picture of his mother, who passed away a year ago, displayed on a crystal heart.

Footage captured on March 20 in Houston, Texas, shows the man bursting into tears as he finds the crystal heart with a picture of his mother inside a box given by his girlfriend.

The girlfriend said of the tear-jerking moment: "Everyday he says he misses her and I wanted to make this birthday special since this is his first birthday without her.''
