Reddit Helped Grieving Father To Deal With His Daughter’s Death

 

Get your tissues ready! Nathan Steffel is the father of Sophia, who unfortunately was born with a medical condition, which would allow her to live only six weeks. Nathan saw Sophia only in the hospital with attached medical equipment.

After she passed away, Nathan wanted to have at least a normal picture of his daughter. Therefore, he decided to make the following request on Reddit “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?”

 

A dedicated and compassionate user named “Funkybrewster” edited the photo and was able to remove the medical tubes from the picture. This represents a beautiful act of human compassion. Take a look at the pictures below and see Sophie finally in her full beauty.
