Just months after his father’s death, a son discovered a heartwarming message while dismantling one of his old workbenches. The son shared the emotional love letter penned from his father to his mother, which quickly went viral on the popular image sharing website Imgur.
Imgur user ButAnywayHeresWonderwall shared a touching discovery found within his father’s old workbench. He explained that his father had passed away just a couple months prior at the age of 51 due to a ruptured artery. While taking apart the workbench, he found a secret letter that had been written in marker on the wood.
The note reads: “I love you Becca. Whatever day this is, I hope it’s a good one. God truly answered my prayers the day he gave me you. I know that these days are the best I’ll ever have, and I’m glad you’re in them. 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 [I] want in this life, it is to be as good as you are to me. If I can do that, I’ll be the happiest man alive.”
According to ButAnywayHeresWonderall, his father had built the workbench when his mother got into metal engraving. Had he taken the workbench apart, the heart wrenching letter may have never been unearthed.
