Santa Visited A Hospital And Left In Tears After A Young Angel Passed Away In His Arms 8k
Every kid loves visiting Santa just before Christmas and asking him for all the things they love: toys, pets and good times. But one Santa had a heartbreaking experience when he was called out to visit a terminally-ill young boy.
Eric Schmitt-Matzen, 60, was asked by a nurse a local hospital if he could make a visit to a terminally-ill little boy who in his final hours. Upon arrival and seeing the boy’s mother in tears, she handed Santa a gift and asked him to give it to her son. After a cheerful conversation with Santa trying everything he could to make the boy feel at ease and to see him smile, the boy asked how he would know ‘where he was going’, knowing that he wasn’t going to be around for much longer.
Santa, with tears filling his eyes, told the little boy that when he ‘arrives at the pearly gates, tell them you’re Santa’s number one elf, they’ll let you right in’. The boy was ecstatic and couldn’t believe he was Santa’s favorite!
The boy had one final question, he asked Santa if he could save him from, just seconds before he passed away in Santa’s arms. Schmitt-Matzen said he burst into tears and cried for the entire drive home.
