It is a story of love and loss that was told by one of the Imgur users. His father Mason passed away in February 2012 at the age of 51 from a ruptured artery leaving him and his mother grieving. But the story had started long before that.
At some point Mason’s wife had gotten into metal engraving and wanted to have her own space for work. Luckily, Mason was a skilled carpenter so there was no problem for him to build her a special workbench.
Sometime after the untimely death of this beloved husband and father, the son noticed that one leg of his mom’s workbench was broken. His father taught him everything he knew, so he just took the legs off to secure them with bolts.
Flipping the workbench, he found something scribbled on the underside. Something in red marker that would probably never be seen if he wouldn’t flip the bench. It was a note for his mother Becca…
Here is the inscription:
"I love you Becca.
Whatever day this 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, and I’m glad you’re in them.
I’m not sure if you’ll ever see this, but if you do, just know that I love you very much. If there is one thing I want in life, it is to be as good to you as you are to me. If I can do that, I’ll be the happiest man alive.
I love you beautiful wife.
