Girl Gifts Portrait Of Mom's Late Father In Sweet Surprise
A loving grandmother whose father was killed when she was nine was brought to tears when her daughter presented her with a portrait of the man she had forgotten from 70 years ago. Avelina Soriano Pardo said that her father was allegedly murdered in Mexico in 1950, and over the years she had no photographs to remember him by. That was until 2017, when Avelina’s family were tossing out some of her old belongings and discovered a bible, from which an old photo fell out. Avelina immediately recognized the man in the tattered black and white photograph as her father, and so, a few years on, her daughter Roselia Soriano Vargas decided to get the image enhanced and colorized in secret. Having kept her actions from her mother, U.S. citizen Roselia waited for Avelina to visit her at her home in Bakersfield, California, and then decided she would present her mother with the gift. Capturing the moment on video earlier this year, Roselia handed her mother the gift, which she opened and emotion immediately came over her face. Avelina, a self-confessed daddy's girl, said in Spanish: “How handsome, my daddy. This makes me cry, daughter, because I see him here like he was.” As the 79-year-old began to well up, Roselia was forced to stop filming, as she, too, was crying happy tears.
