Five-year-old Sophie’s great grandmother suffers from dementia.

Recently, the young Irish girl accompanied her parents on her first visit to her elderly relative, who lives in the UK.

At first, her parents had some reservations about how the meeting might unfold. Fortunately, their worries proved to be in vain.

“We were worried what her reaction would be, but what happen[ed] next surprised us,” said Sandy Miller, who uploaded the moment captured on video to YouTube on August 24.

Sophie showed her caring personality by treating her great grandmother to a rendition of the timeless song ‘You Are My Sunshine,’ while stroking her face and ending with a kiss.

“A beautiful moment,” Miller said.

Currently, the video has nearly 160,000 views.
