23 SERIOUS PEOPLE WHO HAD TO CLEAN OUT ROOMS OF SOMEONE WHO HAD DIED FAMILY FRIEND OR OTHERWISE DID YOU FIND ANYTHING YOU SHOULDN’T HAVE FOUND AND HOW DID IT MAKE YOU FEEL

1. we…

This one is actually kind of heartwarming…

My dad was a pretty reserved guy. While I knew in my heart he would lay down and die for me without a moment's hesitation, he never said "I love you" or "I'm proud of you" or anything like that. It's just who he was.

After he died of cancer, we went to his office to clear it out. I'd never really been in his actual office since, on the rare occasions I'd see him at work, he'd usually meet me at reception.

Well, when we went in there, it was practically a shrine to me and my sister. Every certificate, photo, newspaper clipping, program, etc. was hung up on the walls of his office. A number of people came by to pay their respects as we were clearing things out and, again and again, I heard "he was so proud of you." "I've heard so many things about you, it's nice to meet you in person." "You were so special to your father. He spoke the world of you."

Honestly, you could have knocked me over with a feather. Definitely one of the more bittersweet moments in my life…

RIP, Dad. Miss you…
