“Professor Learned My Mom Died 6 Months Ago And Wrote Me This Letter.”

A letter from a professor to his grieving student.

One Reddit user shared an incredibly heartwarming letter they received from their professor, and we’re still in tears over his beautiful words. Apparently, student and teacher had something very sad in common: both had lost their moms. When the professor found this out, he penned a very thoughtful letter about his own experience with grief. His encouraging message touched this student’s heart so profoundly, they wanted to share it with the internet!

First, the professor recalled how difficult it was for him when his mom passed away from cancer.

“For a while, every day without her seemed like a nightmare,” he wrote. “Everything became absurd and meaningless.”

Then, he added, “I cannot imagine the extent and depth of your suffering, because losing one’s beloved mom at such a young age has to be an immense trial.”

However, the professor didn’t spend the entire letter dwelling on pain; instead, he offered hope. The student said that they were particularly affected by “the last two sentences.”

“We will see our moms again,” the teacher wrote. “I am as sure of this as I am certain of the fact that the love they had for us is eternal.”

What a beautiful message to receive during a difficult time! This professor did such an excellent job comforting and sympathizing with his grieving student through his letter.
