His 98th birthday was approaching and all that Alfred Birch from Massachusetts wanted was to reach 98 likes for a post he made on Facebook to celebrate his birthday.
Julia, his granddaughter, was skeptical that her grandpa, who years ago worked as an official inspector for NASA, could even get close to that number.
It was a huge surprise when, in a matter of hours, Alfred’s post reached 22,000 likes. The man is in hospital because of a major heart problem.
Since his family wasn’t sure that Alfred would get better, they began creating video reminders like this so that Julia’s grandpa could be remembered in the happiest way possible.
