This tweet about PawPaw will break your heart and make you want to visit your grandparents

Go hug your grandparents. And eat a hamburger with them if they invite you over, for crying out loud!

That's the painful lesson the Internet is learning from one sad tweet posted Wednesday.

Kelsey Harmon, who seems like just a regular girl from Oklahoma, posted a photo that broke hearts across the Twittersphere.

The tweet got more than 65,000 retweets and 110,000 likes in less than 24 hours - along with COUNTLESS replies containing gifs of people crying.

"Kelsey seriously why would you even tweet that bc now I'm sad," Paige Gann replied.

Kelsey responded: "bc people need to appreciate their family ok I was so sad ?????????" 


Check out some of the responses:

Kelsey said she was getting so many replies she couldn't keep up with them all.

On Thursday she posted an update: "papaw is ok guys I promise & he loves all grandkids equally, plz stop sending my cousins death threats everything is ok !!!!"
