Grieving Father Asks The Internet To Photoshop His Daughter's Photo After She Passed Away
July 16, 2014
Nathen Steffel posted a heartbreaking request on the website/forum Reddit this past weekend asking someone to Photoshop a picture of his daughter Sophia who lived only six weeks before passing away last week.
He has been overwhelmed by internet users' responses. He originally posted:
"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?"
He never anticipated the speed, scale and generosity of the response.
Steffel received numerous Photoshopped pictures from Reddit users.
"All I wanted was a nice picture," Steffel added. "What I received was a lot of love and support from a bunch of strangers. A long with a lot of great photos, drawings and paintings. Thanks everyone!"
"I stayed up until 3am that night trying to respond to everyone who had seemed to have a similar experience," Sophia's father revealed to Buzzfeed.
"It helped knowing that others cared enough to stop whatever they were doing in their own lives to either send me a picture or just their condolences.
"It's just awesome that this story and her pictures have touched so many people."
