A Tumblr account being run by a 16-year-old user is currently getting a lot of attention online. Aptly called ‘The Last Message Received,’ the page managed by Emily Trunko, a student at Ohio Virtual Academy, contains “submissions of the last messages people received from ex-friends or ex-significant others, as well as from deceased friends, significant others, and relatives.”
For this post, we’ll share with you a few entries from the site which truly broke our hearts – those ones that are from people’s departed loved ones. Read on and be sure to have a box of tissue within your reach.
#1. “You’re missing ‘music therapy.”
“This is the last text I got from my mum before she died of brain cancer at the age of 53. It left her completely paralyzed on the left side of her body, hence the typos in the texts
“What she was saying was, ‘You’re missing ‘music therapy’. Almost as good as Good Friday church giggles.’
“A few years prior, we went to a Good Friday service. The choir was absolutely horrendous – couldn’t sing whatsoever.
“She and I sat there, in the most somber church service of all unable to stop, laughing hysterically. She sent me this text while she was in hospice and I was at school. They give the patients there ‘music therapy’, which is basically just code for weird New Age people with singing bowls.
“She knew I’d laugh at that. At the time she sent me this, her brain had been rapidly fading. She never lost her crazy sense of humor, even during the end. This is probably the best last text I could’ve ever gotten.”
#2. "Tell me all about your life. I miss you too much!”
“I had met him six months before and fell in love with him. By the time I had realized it, he didn’t want me anymore so we stayed close friends.
“I had signed on to let him finally know I was in love with him only to read this and the next message from our good friend letting me know he had killed himself that day. Nothing will be the same again.”
#3. "I will love and miss you always."
“My good friend’s dad died around Thanksgiving. Two weeks later he drank himself to death.”
#4. "That's what friends are for, doll face."
“Two days later I woke up to a call from her boyfriend that she’d committed suicide and my best friend was gone forever.
“I am haunted every day by the fact that I was too caught up in my own s**t to ask her if she was okay too.”
#5. "Where are you?"
“On that Monday, 21 December 2015, I lost my mum. I had last verbally spoken to her at 4pm, and she passed away at about 5.30pm.
“I miss her so much, and life has kind of left a bitter taste in my mouth due to it. When the police came to tell us that she was gone, I remember bursting into tears and saying,’well, Merry Christmas,’ to my father.
“I miss her more than I care to admit.”
#6. "Made it home."
“My father just recently passed away from a vicious battle with lung cancer. I lived an hour and a half away and spent all my down time driving to him to spend time with him.
“And it will never feel like enough. He was my best friend and I just don’t know what to do anymore.”
#7. "I didn't know what to say."
“Not too long after this, he was diagnosed with cancer. I was a terrible friend and didn’t know what to say to him, so I just…didn’t.
“He’s been gone for almost two and a half years now, and every time I make macaroni and cheese, I think of him and that he loved it so much, he was buried with a box. Fly high, man. We miss you.”
As we all go through our respective relationships in life, may we treasure every moment and every interaction. We can never tell which one may be the last conversation we’ll ever have with those we love.
This Man Travels The World To Collect McDonald’s Burger Boxes
Meet the world’s biggest fast food fan!
Serge Zaka is probably the world’s biggest McDonald’s fan. Besides, this guy from Lusignan, France doesn’t only eat at the popular fast food brand’s local branch – he travels the world and collects food boxes.
This 26-year-old man works as a climate researcher and he admits that visiting the Golden Arches is always a must for him whenever he has to go for out-of-country trips. He dines in them and takes the boxes home for his collection.

Hospital Staff Adopts Newborn Baby With Deformities After Parents Refuse To Take Him Home
Nurse and hospital administrator adopts a baby with a rare genetic disorder and gives him the love and care that he needs.
There’s nothing more heartbreaking than to hear stories about newborn babies who were abandoned by their birth parents because they didn’t come out “perfect.” Some of them opt to desert their kid upon discovering that the infant will require special needs while others disown those who have congenital deformities. Incidents such as these often make us question the character of the individual who could do such a despicable act.
But just when we’re about to lose our faith in humanity, some people step in, do the most unexpected thing, and reassure us that there are still plenty of good people out there---just like these two hospital employees from the Burrows Memorial Christian Hospital in India.
Baby Adam was born with a rare genetic disorder called Bartsocas-Papas Syndrome. He had no eyelids, nose, hands, and his lower extremities were fused together. His parents refused to take him home as they claimed that he will bring shame to their family. They also said that they'd be forced to poison Adam if the hospital staff would coerce them to take him with them....

He sure knows his priorities!
We’ve long established that no one – yes, not a single being – can resist pizza.
