Heartwarming Tearjerker of the Day: Remember Scott Widak, the man with Down syndrome who was terminally ill with liver disease, and whose nephew Sean O’Connor posted Widak’s address to Reddit this past spring?
“One of my uncle’s favorite things to do is open mail, and I thought that if he got a lot of mail it would cheer him up.”
Widak died Saturday, and O’Connor returned to Reddit with an update – and with a beautiful Imgur album that captures the last months of Widak’s life, and the letters and gifts he received from all over the world:

Thank you reddit for thinking of my uncle. He will surely be missed… His general cheerfulness did decline a bit as he got more ill, but his happiness didn’t fail to shine through at times no matter how sick he got.
