A loving dad prepared thirty years’ worth of birthday cards for his twin daughters after being diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumor.
Nick Keenan was a proud father of twin daughters Rose and Sophia who were just 17 months old when their dad succumbed to an inoperable tumor.
After finding out he had just months to live, the doting dad decided to write thirty messages that his daughters could read each time they turn one year older and he’s not there to greet them anymore.
Recently, Sophia and Rose opened the greeting cards that their dad prepared for their fourth birthday. In his messages, the dad urged the girls to look after each other as they brace to start school.
“Nick was everyone’s rock, and very much mine. He was incredibly strong and went to work every day of his radiotherapy and chemotherapy, which I was inspired by,” Nick’s grieving wife, Victoria, expressed.
“He also managed to support me going through IVF like any good husband would, even though he was going through much bigger things. It was never about him.”
She continued: “He was consoling others as he was dying and he wrote our girls, Rose and Sophia, birthday cards for the first 30 years of their lives.
“He wanted to be with them in spirit as they celebrated their birthdays without him. Hopefully, it will give them a better idea of where he was at that stage in his life.”
Victoria also shared a picture of the fourth birthday letter that her late husband penned for little Sophia. The message read: “You’ll be big girls now and going to big school soon. Be brave and look after your sister. Lots of love, Daddy.”
While the contents of the other letters remain secret, Victoria hopes that the messages from beyond will help her daughters keep their late dad close to their hearts through the years.
