Last weekend, Alicia Salas and her family decided to throw an unforgettable birthday celebration for their grandmother, Josie Reza. She was turning 85 years old. Since it was quite a milestone, they wanted to make the birthday very special for Josie.

The last memory that Josie and her husband made before he passed away was enjoying a mariachi band together. She misses him badly, so Salas and her family hired a mariachi band to surprise Josie and asked them to play a song that’s very special to Josie called “Las Mañanitas”. What followed has brought many people to tears.

Josie Reza got to celebrate her 85th birthday in perhaps the most touching way possible.
