Seeing your child graduate from high school or college is one of the most unforgettable experiences in your life as a parent.
People who have been there will recall the pride and unrestrained excitement that comes from seeing your not-so-little one complete a part of their life that they worked so hard to achieve.
Dennis Roach, a Texas father, must have felt ten times better in 2018 because his daughter’s high school graduation offered him the opportunity to recreate a photo from 2000, and the result made people all around the world smile…
Dennis graduated from high school in 2000, and he was fortunate to have his young daughter Tori with him for the celebration.
They posed for a photo at the time, and Dennis kissed his daughter. It was the perfect way to remember his special day.
Tori Roach was the one who celebrated her high school graduation in 2018.
Dennis was there to celebrate the event, and he and the other guy had the brilliant idea to recreate a photograph of the two of them from eighteen years ago.
Tori snuggled in her father’s arms in the new chapter and received another kiss on the lips.
People on Twitter reacted positively to the images she shared from 2000 and 2018. Nobody could have expected how nicely it would go.
“18 years later,” Tori remarked beside her photo. It rapidly went viral, receiving 57,000 reposts and nearly 150,000 likes.
Many others expressed their delight after seeing the image in the comments section.
“Ugh, this is just the sweetest,” one person wrote.
Another added: “One of the best pictures I have seen … I wish you and your family the best of luck.”
“Wow lovely…” a third said.
But the feature that a lot of people saw and couldn’t help but comment on was probably the most interesting thing about the two pictures.
One thing that stood out was that Tori’s dad, Dennis, didn’t look like he had aged at all between the two pictures.
“How old is your father,” mused one person. “He looks ageless.”
“I think you froze your father until you grow up,” another joked.
“Damn did you dad age any?” a third quipped.
Tori couldn’t believe how many people were interested in her post.
She later had to explain that her dad, who was 37 years old when she graduated from high school, wasn’t single.
She also talked to People about Dennis’s pride.
“I woke up and I had a ton of notifications. People had started sharing and liking and commenting all over again. My dad was really proud. We’re from a small town, so nothing like this really ever happens. And he was like, ‘That’s so cool!’”
She added, “It brought me and my dad closer in a way because we could share that moment, and I feel that not many other people get to experience that.”
This is such a sweet story about how much a father loves his daughter.
