(Scroll down for video) A teenager’s 16th birthday was very emotional as he received a gift from his deceased father.

Chandler Mae Crow wrote about the moment she learned that her father had bought her brother a birthday present before his death.

The boy’s father passed away two months before his son Johnathon “Johnny” Crow’s birthday after suffering a heart attack.

Chandler, 20, wrote on Facebook that about a month ago, she dropped Johnny off for his guitar lesson, and one of the instructors told her that there was something she should see.

The instructor showed her the guitar that her father had ordered for his son before his death.

“I just dropped to my knees, I just couldn’t believe it, but I had to keep it a secret until his birthday,” she wrote.

She then described how she surprised her brother on his 16th birthday with the gift their father got for him. Chandler also took video of the big surprise.

Chandler said that she picked her brother up from school, she blindfolded him before driving to Port Huron Music Center, where he first received a card that was signed by their father.

Store employees then handed the birthday boy a Dean Razorback guitar that his father purchased one month before his death.

“A big thank you goes out to the Port Huron Music Center employees, 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 wrote.

The video went viral and was seen by more than 11.6 million people.
