Widow Discovers Handwritten Note From Late Husband Under Bench

A son who found a handwritten note underneath a handcrafted work bench his dad made for his mother has uploaded the photo to social media - where it has been seen more than 1.4 million times.

The poster says his 51-year-old father died earlier this year from a ruptured artery. But before he died, he left a heartbreaking message for his wife, hidden underneath a work bench he had made for her.

The message reads:

"I love you...

"Whatever day it is, I hope it's a good one. God truly answered my prayers the day he gave me you.

"I know that these days are the best I'll ever have...

"I'm not sure if you'll ever see this, but if you do just know that if there is one thing I want in life it is to be good to you...

"If I can do that, I'll be the happiest man alive."
