Prepare to be moved to tears of joy and sadness.
A young man named Connor’s tweet has gone viral this week and we guarantee that after you read it, you will never look at rubber ducks the same way again.
My dad always found rubber ducks while on walks and hid them around for his version of good luck. He passed four years ago, and we thought we found them all.
Tonight, I opened the back seat cupholder of my car for apparently the first time in a while.

With over 250k likes and almost 40k shares, the heartfelt tweet has clearly touched many across the internet, and Connor has since followed up on the original tweet with these messages:
Since I'm usually a pretty private person, I'm astounded by the outpouring of support this tweet's gotten.
To all my new friends and strangers this tweet passes by, do a new act of kindness for someone today. Be someone's rubber duck ðŸ¦†

My closing thought on this thread:
I'm stoked I made so many new friends and I'm so fortunate that so many of you have shared similar stories or just thoughts in general with me. I'm so very thankful that you all have allowed me to share how great my dad was with you all. Be AðŸ¦†
