Just before he turned 16, Johnny Crow’s father passed away last April.  He tried to resuscitate him with CPR to no avail.

Johnny’s sister received a call from their local music shop, Port Huron Music Center, and informed her that a guitar was ready for pickup.  Months before he passed, Johnny’s father ordered a guitar for his son’s birthday, ordering it in January to make sure he got the model, a Dean Razorback, correct.

His sister filmed Johnny picking up the guitar, and you can’t help but shed a tear when it all hits Johnny.  It truly shows the strong bond between father and son.

It’s hard to say something like this has a “happy ending,” but as this story and the video became more and more viral, strangers from all over stepped in to donate Johnny a TON of gifts.  The owner of the guitar shop created a PayPal, and generous strangers ended up donating over $16,000 to the “Happy Birthday Johnny” fund, along with another brand new guitar, and a pair of tickets to see Alice Cooper, along with backstage passes.

Happy Birthday, Johnny!
