There’s nothing quite as devastating as losing a loved one. Even when they’re no longer in your life, somehow, they still are — through memories, through objects, through tiny legacies they left behind.
Twitter user Connor‘s dad used to collect rubber ducks he’d find on walks and hide them around the house. After his death, Connor thought he had found them all, but four years later, he came across this:

Connor’s dad seems like he was a really special guy, that’s for sure.

Somehow, we have a feeling Connor’s dad is sending us all a message.
Cherish the moments with people in your life, and love the little pieces of them they leave with you, even while they’re alive. Someday, they’ll feel more important than you ever thought they could.
