Grandfather Goes Super Viral for His Heartwarming Reactions to His Granddaughter's Visits—Video
The smile says everything.
Last Friday, Twitter user @JenBarclayX gave her 87-year-old grandfather a great gift: a video compiling his elated reaction to each of her visits.
My wee Grandad, 87 years young and he's my no.1 guy💕 I love him with all my heart. And I love recording his reactions when I come to visit. I hope everyone can appreciate the video I've made as much as I do👴🏻💕xoxo pic.twitter.com/4XK4TEBctQ

The video, which has been retweeted 116,000 times so far, has managed to touch the hearts of many other people on the Internet as well because it is so pure.
The last may have been the sweetest. I watched this with my 15-year-old daughter whose grandfathers died before and soon after her birth, and we were both so touched. What a lucky girl you are. Thank you for sharing.

They live to see you. Like, literally.
"Hello, honeybun". Says it all. He loves you. Over and over and over. Best thing ever. ❤️

They want you to visit so much they'll even bribe you with tasty treats.
I wish I did this with my grandma. Sometimes she even came to the door with fresh cookies.

So give your grandparents a visit. It'll light up their lives, and they won't be around forever.
This actually made me cry. You lucky lady Jen. I miss my grandad so much. You can't buy that can you?
