People in tears after man finds letter his mum wrote to him before she died from cancer

People in tears after man finds letter his mum wrote to him before she died from cancer

The heartbreaking letter was shared on Reddit.

People - including myself - have been left in tears after a man has shared the heartbreaking letter his mum wrote to him before she died of cancer.

The note was shared on Reddit and it's making people call their mums immediately.

Matt - who uploaded the letter onto the social media platform - said that he misses her everyday.

Although the note makes him cry, Matt says he cries 'with a smile on my face.'

Addressed to Matt, the note read: "I'm writing this letter in hopes of you finding this one day.

"I hope you knew how much I loved you! You have the kindest soul of any one I knew.

"You were always there for me when I needed you.

"You quit your job knowing you would not have any income just so I would have someone to take me to treatments.

"What an awesome thing to do! Thank you for that!

"I hope + pray that you are close to Kristie + Kyle. Family is everything.

"I hope that you have found the person of your dreams, that you are very happy + content in your life, you so deserve it.

"One of the best time spent with you was at Grounds for Sculptures. Do you remember? I will always be watching over you.

"I always feared leaving you more than I feared dying. You were the best son ever!

"Til we meet again! Love eternally, mommy xo."

And readers have been left sobbing, as one person commented: "Bro I’m crying too after reading this. I’m gonna be back, gotta go hug my mom."

"As someone who also lost their mom to that awful disease, this makes me ugly cry. They just grow up too fast," another added.

"This made me call my mom, i was crying when she picked up and I guess she knew I was missing her because we live in different countries and she just let me finish crying. Never felt so good," a third wrote.

"I'm crying. Your mom must have been amazing, and you must have been a very good son. I'm so sorry for your loss. Take care, Matt!" a fourth agreed.

Sadly, Matt also took to the online forum to share the news that his dad is 'now in the ICU from complications with his own cancer now too.'

He reminded everyone to 'tell the people you love how much they mean to you' and to 'remind them everyday that you love them'.
