After his infant daughter passed away, a heartbroken father turned to Reddit recently to make one simple request: photoshop his baby without medical tubes.
“Photoshop Request: My daughter recently passed away after a long battle in the children’s hospital. Since she was in the hospital her whole life we never were able to get a photo without all her tubes. Can someone remove the tubes from this photo?” the father asked on the Internet community website.
The response was overwhelming.
The father later thanked the Internet community for their response.
“This is really amazing,” he wrote. “Everyone you have made my day. All I wanted was a nice picture. What I received was a lot of love and support from a bunch of strangers. A long with a lot of great photos, drawings and paintings. Thanks everyone!”
He additionally responded to one particular individual’s comment, saying he’s happy his newborn will feel no more pain.
“It comforts us to know she will never experience heartbreak. She only knew the love my wife and I gave her,” he wrote.
