FORT WAYNE, Ind. (FORT WAYNE'S NBC) - When Josh Fisher woke up on Christmas Eve he still hadn't completed his Christmas shopping. His family was gathering later in the afternoon so he had to act fast. The family is made up of huge Ohio State Football fans, but OSU merchandise isn't easy to buy in Fort Wayne. Josh drove to Toledo to buy some jerseys, then returned just in time for the party.

The Chase Young jersey he wrapped up for his grandmother Sandy Williams did not disappoint. He posted video of her opening the gift on Twitter. Chase Young retweeted the video. "Seeing him retweet it was just like, wow," he says. "When I showed it to her she was in awe." As of Thursday night the video had more than 110,000 views.

It's a simple video really, but behind it is a familiar story for many of us during the holidays. Williams lost her husband James last year. Christmas can be tough after you've lost a loved one, but the special gift from her grandson was exactly what she needed to lift her spirits.

The Ohio State Buckeyes play the Clemson Tigers Saturday in the Fiesta Bowl.
