Grieving husband sends heartbreaking letter to hairdresser after his wife passes away

0

A grieving husband sent a moving letter to his wife’s hairdresser following her death to say her final visit was one of the “last best moments of her life”.

The man explains that he had waited “a really long time” to pass on the message, but wanted to express his gratitude and let her know why the visit had meant so much.

His wife had been suffering from dementia and he said Sara at the salon treated her as if she had been dealing with dementia patients “all your life”.

He says they were allowed to sit next to one another and when it came to his wife’s turn to have her hair cut, they turned her chair to face him so he could watch her expression.

In a heartbreaking letter explaining why the simple act had meant so much, he wrote: “It turned out even better than I thought it would.

“Sadly, she died in March. And that haircut was one of the last, best moments of her life.

“She felt so pretty. She visited the mirror in the bathroom several times during the day and would come out beaming. To see her happy was so priceless.

“Looking back, it was likely one of dozens of haircuts you gave that day. But one which revitalised a woman’s sense of self and her singular beauty.

“I hope you realised the power of your profession. It’s so easy to take things like that for granted.”

The anonymous note, signed by a ‘grateful customer’, was shared on Reddit where it left readers in tears.

One commented: “We often don’t notice the impact we have on one another in the moment, what a beautiful letter.”

A second wrote: “How nice! People are always so quick to tell a person or business the negative experience they had, but leave out the positive when that could really change someone’s day or come at a time when they’ve been questioning themselves or feeling down.”

Another said: “Why did the sentence ‘She felt so pretty’ just make me cry like a baby?”
