‘I didn’t realize how much I would miss my dad’s handwriting. I didn’t know handwriting could be part of the grieving process. Mourning handwriting? But I did. I still do.’: Daughter gets tattoo of dad’s handwriting before he passes of pancreatic cancer

“I watched him sketch out that second attempt and smile at it. He looked up and said, ‘How’s this one? I think this one is better, don’t you think?’ Maybe he was imagining it actually being tattooed on me and how that would feel, after he was gone.”

‘My DAD was in the delivery room when I birthed my first child. ‘It’s okay Molz, you got this!’: Daughter grateful to experience ‘remarkable moment’ with father after losing him 3 years later

“I looked up from the bed horrified my dad was actually watching this whole thing. He could have snuck out. But he chose to stay. And I chose to let him. The power of those decisions would not be fully understood until years later. My dad died when the baby girl he witnessed come into this world was just 3 and a half years old.”
