“Dad I wish you were here so we could have fun together.”
Those are the simple, tender, heartbreaking words of a little boy named Alexander, penned on a dusty note to his late father.
“I wish you a Merry Christmas I hope you tell God to give me those presents.”
The note, attached to a beautiful photo of Alexander with his parents, was found tied to a helium balloon in Suzanne Womac Edwards’ garden.
“I hope you are happy in heaven,” it read. “If you are OK then tell me. I love you, Alexander.”
Upon finding it, the mother shared the image to Facebook. Of it, she told her friends: “A helium balloon floated into my yard today and landed on my heart! Attached was a note that made me cry and hug my family a little tighter.”
