Remember the elderly gentleman who bought Christmas presents for his neighbour’s 2-year-old daughter before passing, one for each year until her 16th birthday? A similar gesture was planned by Manila-based Alyssa Mendoza’s father Bing who was suffering from chronic kidney disease.
According to Mail Online, he wrote an email before his death outlining surprises he had planned for his wife for the coming years. Alyssa was quoted saying,
“3 weeks ago I received a scheduled email from my dad. At first, I was scared to open it cos well who wouldn’t be scared to get and open an email from someone who passed away 10 months ago, plus it was 3:00 am and I was finishing requirements and I was the only one awake in our whole house. Two days after I saw the notification, I decided to open the e-mail and couldn’t believe what I was reading. My dad’s love for my mom IS definitely immeasurable.”
She further added, “The e-mail contained instructions for me for their anniversary celebration this year. Apparently, before my dad passed away 10 months ago, he planned everything, he even contacted and paid for a florist to deliver flowers to my mom for the coming years on every special occasion, my mom’s birthday (August 19,) Valentine’s Day, and their anniversary (June 10.)”
“The e-mail also contained a letter that he wrote for my mom which had all the words she needed to hear from him to be okay. He literally thought of everything to make his great love feel all his love. They were supposed to celebrate their 25th silver wedding anniversary together today but God had other plans. But even if they’re not physically together, even though he’s no longer here, he was still able to surprise and make my mom happy. Not even death could stop my dad from loving my mom and showing her how much she meant to him.”
