Terminally Ill Child Dies In Santa’s Arms

OK, major, MAJOR mascara warning with this.

“He laid back and looked up at me and said, ‘They tell me I’m going to die.’ And I said, ‘Can you do me a favor? When you get to the pearly gates, you tell him you’re Santa’s number one elf.’ And he said, ‘I am?’ I said, ‘Sure you are. And they’ll let you right in,'” Eric Schmitt-Matzen, 61, of Caryville, Tennessee, said.

He said the boy then looked up at his eyes and asked, “Santa, can you help me?”

Schmitt-Matzen said he hugged the boy and that’s when he passed away in his arms. “Tears were running down my face,” Schmitt-Matzen said, adding that it took him a while to recover from the heartache. “It took two weeks to not be seeing his little eyes looking up at me all the time.”
