“Everything that one could imagine a widower with 2 kids is going through, I am,” Emperor_Zar wrote on Reddit. “However I thought this would be a positive way of going through the grieving process.”
Once his tribute was complete he revealed it to his followers. “I wanted to share this as I hope this will help others maybe facing something similar, and to help with my grieving process,” the widower explained. He couldn’t have anticipated how they would react.
The outpouring of support Emperor_Zar received was overwhelming. But he didn’t just get messages of support – the widower also had correspondence from Reddit users who’d suffered their own losses.
