It is a sad reality in life that all of us have an end. We don’t know how long we have left and how much time we really have on Earth.
Recently, one sad husband found the heartbreaking note written by his late wife. It is personal and something that she wrote just for him, yet it was also so sweet that he could not help but share it. Soon, the note would go viral and has reached more than 52k shares and close to 90k reactions.
Nestor Flores Mangila Jr. and Gladys Mangila were married for 15 years but fate had other plans. She got sick.
Last December 2019, knowing that she did not have much time left on Earth, Gladys made a note on her phone that she locked so that Nestor won’t be able to see it yet. When she passed, Nestor found the note on her phone but it took him some time before he was finally able to open it.
When he finally opened the note, he saw that it was meant for him. The heartbreaking note still managed to sound bright and optimistic, despite Gladys knowing that her family’s story will continue without her in it.
What’s really so sweet about the letter is that she encouraged Nestor to be strong and happy, knowing that he needs to do that for the kids and also for himself.
Instead of warning him against women he might meet in the future, Gladys even gave him her blessing to accept someone knew, should she come along. She knew that her husband can’t grieve for her forever and that he deserves to be happy, too.
At the end of the note, she shared a quote from one of the family’s favorite movie, UP.
“Thanks for the adventure, now go have a new one.” — Ellie/GladysMae
It was both farewell and a blessing. It is the most heartbreaking yet also sweetest note someone could ever write for her beloved husband. Even in her last moments, she still thought about his happiness…
