A Husband Planned A Surprise For His Wife Before He Died

"I am waiting for you."

Posted on

"Hi Honey, I made sure our girls will always take care of you. Please let them love you and help you through this time," the note begins.

"Find happiness through our memories, our children, and our grandchildren. Don't cry for me, for I am waiting for you," it ends.

Mendez said her grandmother was so touched by the surprise, which she received four days after her husband's death.

"[She] thought that it was beautiful and she cried," Mendez said. "He chose the fruit basket because he knew she loves fruit."


For this person, the feels were way too much.
