A man decided to etch the memory of his late daughter into his subconscious mind forever by inking his last words onto his skin.
Regrettably, the departed soul fell victim to cancer at a very young age, and her affectionate father has now immortalized her memory by tattooing his body with the final words from a note she had given him.
In a social media post he shared, the man expressed, “Before my daughter passed away from cancer, she created this drawing for me, and now I wear it on my skin.”
The accompanying photograph of the heartfelt words “I love you dad,” which seem to be the girl’s last communication, has been shared, evoking strong emotions.
Netizens, deeply moved by the story, have shared their sentiments:
@Whats4_T_MattyD: This brought tears to my eyes. As parents, we often overlook the small moments. Even the simple act of waking my children in the morning, I’ll cherish every opportunity.
@GrazaWhu: I can’t even fathom what it’s like to endure such a trial. Hopefully, this act brings him solace.
@DragonLord1975: I remember seeing something similar on #InkMaster years ago. It tugs at your heartstrings. The tattoo isn’t just a permanent mark; it signifies an eternal BOND between a father and child. That’s the profound message.
@RedBloodYNWA: Heart-wrenching. After seeing that, I had to go into my daughters’ room, wake them up, and give them a tight hug. I can’t fathom how people gather the strength to move forward after such an ordeal.
@steveleavis: It’s simultaneously heartrending and inspiring. The strength displayed is beyond what I could imagine. May your daughter rest in peace. I’m going to express my gratitude to the Lord that I still have my children. Hats off to you.
