When elementary school teacher Mrs. Hunziker’s father passed away, her students decided to write her letters to express their condolences, even if their idea of a sympathy card was a little unconventional.

Her son Matt Hunziker and his New York City-based comedy troop Wolf Spirit decided to make the best out of an awkward situation, and narrate the cards for their YouTube channel.

“When my mother received the cards, we went through them and were simultaneously touched by them, and nearly in tears from laughing,” he told InsideEdition.com. “The great thing with kids is they aren’t programmed with the same social norms we are as adults, so their reactions are unfiltered and genuine.”

From, "I hope your mom does not die," to "I feel droopy and I love you," Matt and fellow comedians Keele Howard-Stone and Tom Brink read the hilarious letters while giving their take on what they believe the students actually meant.

They also explained that the letters also included illustrations — some depicting a scene at the funeral, or their teacher crying at a hospital bed.

"I assumed there would be some people who would find it distasteful because adults get really weird on the subject of death. That’s part of the reason I really loved the reactions from the kids," Matt said. "It was refreshing among all the usual, morbid funeral proceedings to have a bit of lightheartedness thrown into the mix.”

As for Mrs. H, she told InsideEdition.com she couldn’t have loved her students' cards more.

“As an elementary school teacher for 29 years, I have always had the pleasure of seeing how genuine, kind, and hilariously honest children can be," she said. "It is also the best and most fitting tribute to my father."
