A father got so emotional after he received a Father’s Day card from his son who died almost 30 years earlier.
Duane Schrock was stunned when the postman handed over a battered card that had been juggled between addresses and sorting offices ever since it was first sent in 1989.
The 87 year old, said it was unbelievable to get the card as his son Duane Jr died from AIDS in 1995 aged just 45 and the two had seen their relationship breakdown somewhat in the years prior.
He now believes the card is a sign from heaven that his son is doing well and happy.
According to Uk Mirror, Mr Schrock said the relationship suffered as he did not agree with his son’s homosexuality, but the card had help him come to terms with Duane Jr’s death.He said
“I still kind of tear up when I think about it.To get it just a few days after Father’s Day, mailed in 1989 for Father’s Day.”
The card read: ‘
“Dear, Dad, we haven’t been in touch for quite a while, I’m doing fine and am very happy in Richmond, I’d like to hear from you.
“Have a Happy Father’s Day, Love Duane.”
