“A little backstory: My father passed away from Liver/Lung cancer in 1999 after battling it for a year and a half. After so much chemo and medication, he just couldn’t take that quality of life anymore and realized it was his time to go.

I assume at that point he bought cards for my brother and I’s milestone birthdays.”

“It caught me totally off guard and made me so very happy. It felt like he was still there, holding something I’d never seen before that he touched, and signed himself, it was if he had just done it yesterday.”

The man, who received the card from his mother who had saved it all these years, says the card is his “new favorite thing” and moved him to tears.

“I’ve lived longer w/out him than I did with him,” he explained. “So to have these little moments where he kind of pops back into my life again brings everything back in a rush and it’s incredible. I cried, but I did because I was so incredibly happy.”

“I venture to guess he was probably very sick at the time he wrote it,” ChrisBenRoy wrote.  “It kind of makes me wonder what he may have planned for if I get married, have kids, or when I turn 40?”
