When Imgur user ButAnywayHeresWonderwall, learned one of the leg's on his mother's workbench had broke, he decided to fix it.
After turning it over, he discovered something unexpected: a love letter his deceased dad had left for his mom.
According to the son's Imgur post, his father passed away February 26 from a ruptured artery. Long before he passed, he'd made the workbench for his wife when she got into metal engraving.
Written in red marker, the message 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 life, it is to be as good to you as you are to me. If I can do that, I'll be the happiest man alive. I love you beautiful wife." - Mason
After posting the picture, the Imgur user wrote in the comments that he plans to take those two planks with his dad's words and incorporate them into a new workbench to give to his wife.
But this family’s message of love extends beyond that simple workbench.
After his post received over 900,000 views this week, the son thanked everyone on Imgur for their kind words and shared his own, "I only ask that you love one another so there can be peace. Leave the world better than you found it."
