Today and every day, we wish you were here.
We love and miss you,
A family was at a loss for words after learning that their daughter's birthday cake had been paid for by a stranger. But, it was the story behind this act of kindness that melted the hearts of internet users everywhere.
Twitter user @Shhwaggy_T, Kyle Jauregui, posted on the social media platform on Dec. 27, saying that someone had paid for his sister's birthday cake.
He shared photos of the cake and of the message left by their benefactor, who explained that she could no longer wish her own daughter a happy birthday because she is deceased. Therefore she wanted to get somebody else a birthday cake in her child's honor.
So today is my sisters birthday and when we went to pick up her cake someone had already paid for it. It was left with this card... my family was speechless and we just want to say thank you to McKenna's mom and wish McKenna a Happy Birthday. There's still good in this world ???? pic.twitter.com/ev3IeQKu6q— Kyle Jauregui (@Shhwaggy_T) December 27, 2017
The post quickly went viral, with users replying with happy birthday wishes to the little girl who passed away.
At First When She Said She Was "Unable" To Buy One For Her Daughter I Got Confused, But Then I Thought About It, That's When It Hit Me. Her Angel Is No Longer Here pic.twitter.com/WD64ra773M— Slap Me Bitch *SPITS* You MFing Whore Did You..... (@ObeyTheRealKing) December 29, 2017
Many people expressed how emotional they had become the minute they read the mom's note.

As Jauregui aptly said in his post, it's heartwarming to know that there's still so much good in this world.
