“I hope this note is found by one of my children who is curious about beekeeping. Beekeeping is actually pretty easy and you can learn everything you need to know online. Bees make more products than just honey and as a hobby it can be a source of extra income. So don’t be afraid, have courage. Good luck, Dad,” Rick wrote.
She also added that “my father wrote this when he had terminal lung cancer. It was incredibly hard for him and for all of us who loved him.”
People shared their own fond memories of lost loved ones. It was all very bittersweet.
You can almost hear them when you see handwriting.😥 I unpacked my mom's measuring spoons yesterday from an old, old box and the sound of them made me cry. She baked a lot.

After my grandfather died, I found a book I had given him for Father’s Day. On the cover, I wrote a message and signed it “we love you, papaw”
He had written below it - unknown to us - “I love you also.” It’s with me always now pic.twitter.com/uDUgeOoPRH

Y'know, I can't think of anything I'd want my kids to hear me say more than those last 3 lines. What a lovely note...
