Message from 'guardian angel' is girl's touching Christmas surprise

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (FOX 13) -

An 8-year-old girl's loving message on the anniversary of her beloved great-grandmother's death has brought her a Christmas gift she'll never forget.

Last August, on the one-year anniversary of "Maw Maw" Minnie Sue Watts' arrival to Heaven, Bella Hosford released a note to her late grandma written on a balloon.

On Monday, Dec. 23, a beautifully decorated small box arrived at their doorstep addressed to Bella.

Inside the box was the deflated balloon, her pink note, and a locket with a note attached, telling her that, "Maw Maw is always with you. Just close your eyes and you will see her. Love, your guardian angel."

Bella calls the new locket one of her most prized possessions.

"The last thing she ever said to me was, 'I love you, Bella,'" she recalled.
