Simon Thomas lost his wife in November 2017. She was feeling unwell for some time and rushed to the hospital. After careful examination, she was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia (AML).

Simon shared about his grief with the whole world on Twitter. The man was devastated to realize his wife won’t be with him anymore. At the same time, he asked for the prayers for his 8-year-old son, Ethan, who takes hard the death of his mommy.

First birthday without mom and dad’s letter

Time flies fast, and soon it was Ethan’s first birthday without his mom. Of course, the boy said he wanted some toys for his present, but he also said that the best present for him would be his mom being here with him.

Unfortunately, we can’t change the past, and the only thing left is to remember all that good things that happened. So, Ethan’s dad decided to write his birthday boy a touching letter to cheer him up a bit. Here it is:

In addition, Simon Thomas has prepared a bunch of ‘snack notes’ he gives his son every day when he goes to school. They are meant to encourage him and give strength to cope with the pain.

Notes from a stranger

And as Ethan isn’t the only one who needs help and encouragement, one stranger has decided to help him a bit. So he wrote such notes for Simon as well. Every single day of the year has its note. It has appeared that the man’s name is Dan Richie, and Simon plans to meet him and thank the guy for his kind gesture.

If only there were more people like this in the world!
