NBA star, Robert Horry, shared a touching open letter to his daughter Ashlyn who passed away on 6/14/2011 far too young at 17 due to a rare genetic disorder called 1p36 Deletion Syndrome. The NBA legend is famous for his late game heroics on the court but here he shares an even more incredible display of grace under pressure with a powerful letter to his beautiful daughter on Father’s Day.
We all know how precious this life is and how we should never squander any moments but this letter is an amazing reminder for us all. Whether you’re a parent or not, the message is clear, love and appreciate those special people in your life while we still can. At the end of the day, spending time with loved ones is the most important thing we can do. No matter what accomplishments we can achieve in life, the love we share is what matters most. I know as a fact that Robert Horry would trade his impressive 7 NBA titles in a heartbeat for the chance to have more time with his precious little angel.
