One young man couldn't hold back the tears when he got this email from his late father, two years after his death. We don't know exactly why the dad passed away, but we know it was some sort of illness. The redditor's father used a website called FutureMe to send an email into the future.

Get your tissues ready.

Hello Son, I am talking to you from the grave, wooooooooo. I always said I will come back and haunt you.

Seriously, by the time you read this, I will have passed on. Hopefully by now you have adjusted well enough to life without the old man and you have managed to help your mother adjust. I have complete confidence you will be taking just as good care of her as I did.

I have a few thoughts to share with you and a few insights which wet never got around to discussing in the last few months where I was still coherent (I'm imagining the morphine will have turned me into a bit of a vegetable. Hopefully I entertained you with some decent hallucinations or jibber jabber).

The first thing I want to say is just how proud I am........
