Video: Elderly Father Gets 26-Year-Old Letter From His Deceased Son

A father got a message from his son from beyond the grave that had been delayed for 26 years.

Duane Schrock Jr. sent his father a note for Father’s Day in 1989 but it never made it to him.

The pair had a sometimes strained relationship because Duane Schrock Sr. did not approve of his son’s homosexuality, the father told ABC affiliate WSET in Lynchburg, Virginia.

The note was an effort to bridge that divide of sorts, but it never made it to his father before Duane Jr. died of AIDS in 1995.

    The attitude of society has changed so much since that time, and likely the attitude of the parents, that the impact of the letter is likely very different now than it would have been then.
