“Disability Spina Bifida. Over 28 operations he never missed an operation. I don’t understand a lot of things. I couldn’t say goodbye to him but on FaceTime. Yet he never missed one of my operations.”

@Shiguy79 said:

“These are incredibly moving... wow.”

@JellyJynx said:

“This is beautiful...”

@Dena_Doolin said:

“My dad always wrote down so many notes as they came to his mind. He passed away in 2012. I will always hold onto this note that was in his Bible. Seeing those notes tugs at my heartstrings because I know how sentimental they are. You’re not alone.”

@FrasnoshMaz said:

“I am all the tears. My dad was the same way and passed away in 2018. In the ICU, he asked me to practice one of my lectures on him and the man didn’t understand a thing but he used what little energy he had left to smile and nod so vigorously.”

“This is so lovely. I’m so so incredibly sorry for your loss, it must still be so raw. When my dad passed, we also found a notebook where he’d written things trying to make sense of all of us. He’d written the words 'clever' & 'honest' to describe me & I now have them tattooed.”
