This is Alicia Salas, and her 85-year-old grandmother, Josie Reza. Over the weekend, Salas' family decided to give Reza a special 85th birthday celebration, "considering it was a milestone for her," Salas told BuzzFeed News.

Salas and her family surprised their grandmother with a mariachi band. It was the last memory her grandmother and late grandfather shared before he passed away.

The family then hired the band and instructed them to play "Las Mañanitas," a song very special to Reza.

"She enjoyed the music with my grandfather," Salas said. "She misses him very much every day... we all miss him."
