After his sister passed away from a kidney condition at 4-months-old, the film Coco helped 4-year-old Alexander Deais cope with the loss.
One song from the movie that really moved him was "Remember Me," and his father captured this video of Alexander singing it at an altar dedicated to his late baby sister on what would've been her first birthday.

He's only 4 years old and he understands. He didn't even know he was being recorded. He just wanted to sing to her for her 1st birthday!

The clip has since gone viral, with many viewers sending their prayers to the Deais family.
Samir told MySA.com that the reaction has been "nothing short of beautiful," adding, "All this ugly in the world and these kinds of things make it still seem beautiful in the dark times. All these blessings for our small family make us very humbled and thankful and blessed."
My wife and were literally brought to tears seeing how much love Alex and Ava and our family has received. We were FLOORED last night!! I couldn't me more thankful. Thank you to everyone from our little family! What a 1st birthday baby girl! 🌻💕— Samir (@SAM1R) January 2, 2018
All Glory to God #StayHumble
However, of all the blessings sent the family's way, one stands above the rest - they're expecting their third child, a baby girl they've named Stella Grace.
