- The mourning family considered this as a work of the boy’s spirit trying to comfort his mom
It is safe to say that nobody wants to be associated with grief and death, most especially when those two words are related with each other. A death of a loved one is simply hard to bear – whether you had time to prepare for it or not. Imagine how much more difficult it is for a mother to be robbed of a child, and at such a young age at that?
A video uploaded on Facebook by Joy Ganda Vibar-Alamares had gone viral - attracting more than 3.5 million views - after showing a white balloon floating beside her on her son’s wake. A white casket surrounded with several balloons of the same color was seen in the background, as well as a portrait of Trebby who died last September.
The grieving mother was crying softly when one of Trebby’s siblings called out to her, informing her that a lone balloon had drifted away from the rest and was floating towards her. The woman welcomed its presence, even nudged it with her head, and it was on its way. However, it took a quick detour when the woman started crying harder – going back to her and nudges her as she mourns. The grieving mother talked and hugged the balloon which continued to float near her until a few moments when it started to drift away.
Could this be the child’s way of comforting her mother, trying to tell her to stop crying and cheer up? The family confessed that they believe it was the work of their deceased 7-year old, in an act of love and consolation.
There was an outpour of support for the devastated family from the comments and shares alike. However, as nice as it would seem, some viewers only consider it as a coincidence or that the balloon’s movement was only natural.
