WATCH: What could fill this man with so much joy?

It’s truly incredible when a moment of pure emotion can be captured on video and sent out over the internet. Take the video below, where a man finds out that he is going to be a grandfather. It’s almost impossible to watch and not to share in the joy and excitement that comes across his face. The video was uploaded by YouTube user Jessica Hickey, who wrote on Reddit: “I am his only child and my mother passed away 20 years ago. He has been asking us for grandchildren since our wedding night. I think he is happy.”

    Extreme Joy but serious sadness – that his deceased wife does not get to share in the joy. I have a tear also
