Those we love never truly leave us. There are things that death cannot touch.
Here’s a netizen from Philippines wrote a Facebook post lately telling that she received an scheduled email from his late father, who had passed away 10 months ago. Many people were touched to tears by reading the story and it went viral with over 13,000 shares and 28,300 reactions.
The original post:
3 weeks ago I received a scheduled email from my dad. At first, I was scared to open it cos well who wouldn’t be scared to get and open an email from someone who passed away 10 months ago, plus it was 3:00am and I was finishing requirements and I was the only one awake in our whole house.
Two days after I saw the notification, I decided to open the e-mail and couldn’t believe what I was reading. My dad’s love for my mom IS definitely immeasurable.
The e-mail contained instructions for me for their anniversary celebration this year. Apparently before my dad passed away 10 months ago, he planned everything, he even contacted and paid for a florist to deliver flowers to my mom for the coming years on every special occasion, my mom’s birthday (August 19,) Valentine’s Day, and their anniversary (June 10.)
The e-mail also contained a letter that he wrote for my mom which had all the words she needed to hear from him to be okay. He literally thought of everything to make his great love feel all his love. They were supposed to celebrate their 25th silver wedding anniversary together today but God had other plans.
But even if they’re not physically together, even though he’s no longer here, he was still able to surprise and make my mom happy. Not even death could stop my dad from loving my mom and showing her how much she meant to him.
The flowers: My dad picked the flowers in her bouquet. White roses are special to my parents because when my dad was courting her, my mom had two suitors. She told herself that whoever gives her white roses was “the one” and obviously it was my dad who gave her white roses. Pink roses because daddy knows that mummy loves light pink roses.
I followed all of my dad’s instructions. Our helper and I started setting up for mom’s surprise at 11:00pm last night and finished at 5:30am just in time for mom’s daily alarm (6am.) Even though I lack sleep, the joy I saw in my mom’s face made everything worth it.
Of course my mom cried because she misses the love of her life but I could see how happy everything made her because she knew that everything was planned by my dad.
Happy 25th silver wedding anniversary Mummy and Daddy! I love you both forever and always.
