Many of Disney Pixar’s films are tailored to help little children understand complicated topics. The Deais family was deeply moved after seeing it in theaters. The film, which touches on Dia De Los Muertos, brought them to tears. It follows the journey of a young boy as he seeks to find his great-grandfather in the Land of the dead. Deais said the film helped Alexander find a connection with Ava Lynn.
“(Alexander) understands that she has passed and is in heaven, he has seemed to grasp onto the reality of it in a sweet and innocent way a 4-year-old should when it comes to passing away,” Deais said. “And we have Coco to thank for that.”
Social media responded to Alexander’s precious tribute. One person wrote: “I vowed not to shed a tear in 2018. And here we are first day of the new year and my eyes couldn’t hold back.”
There is some good news from the deais family. Samir and his wife are expecting another baby. They’ve named her Stella Grace. Alexander was overjoyed with the news. He can’t wait to be a brother again.
Samir broke the news on Twitter: “After every storm comes a rainbow” My wife and I are proud to announce the newest addition to this family. Stella Grace Deais #RainbowBaby.”
