osing a child is something that most of us could never even fathom. It's every parent's worst nightmare, and is a loss that never truly goes away.
A year after a father from the UK lost his darling 3-year-old son, he decided to write down a few things the unimaginable loss had taught him. Keep scrolling to read his inspiring words.
But maybe grab some Kleenex first.
This is Richard Pringle, a dad from England, with his precious son, Hughie.
Hughie was diagnosed with a brain condition at a very young age.
Although concerning, the doctors said that the condition was manageable.
However, at just three years old, in the summer of 2016, Hughie suffered a brain hemorrhage.
Tragically, he did not survive it.
A year later, still struggling to cope with his grief, Pringle was tucking his daughter into bed when suddenly inspiration struck.
He decided to write down a list of the 10 most important things he’d learned since losing his young son.
And the result is a total tearjerker.
The viral post has been liked 18K times and counting, and seems to have struck a chord with parents from across the globe.
"You can never ever kiss and love too much," Pringle said.
“You always have time. Stop what you’re doing and play, even if it’s just for a minute. Nothing’s that important that it can’t wait.”
