Dealing with the loss of a parent is incredibly challenging regardless of the age of the children left behind, and the sadness tends to always stay with you and pop up at certain times. For example, going through some of your deceased parent’s belongings can spark all kinds of emotions, but they can also give you some fascinating insight into who they really were.
As shared by Independent Journal Review, that’s what happened to this adult son. He was dismantling a workbench that his late father was quite fond of, and he would make a startling discovery. His father had written a love note to his wife, but it was hidden out of sight.
“I’m not sure if you’ll ever see this, but if you do, just know that I love you very much. If there is one thing want in life, it is to be as good to you as you are to me. If I can do that, I’ll be the happiest man alive. I love you beautiful wife,” the note read in part.
The son was so taken by the stirring note that he quickly shared it on social media as a testament to his parents love for one another, and that post has quickly taken on a life of its own.
