|Yeah that's sad but....

|.... Not to nit-pick such a touching story, but in Animal Crossing (I only played it briefly). Doesn't your "mom" in-game send you gifts all the time? If this dude didn't play it for a long long time.. wouldn't it have been his "in-game mom" that sent him the gifts ... not the mom who died from MS?
That might make it MORE sad... anyhow, Pete you played it... am I remembering wrong?

|This is true. It's been brought up in nearly every forum I've seen this posted on in the past few days.
However, there are a few things to say to this.
You can choose to take it either way. One is a pretty touching story, I know I teared up without even noticing until it was running down my cheek.
The other is a sort of 'in' game joke.
The one thing I will say to suggest the comic as truth is this link:
Ignore the url's domain, the link itself is a list of all the mail content that the 'in game mom' sends. They don't quite line up with the content of the letter in the comic.
Regardless, I prefer to remain ignorant on this one, and instead see this as a touching reminder to love your parents and let them know it.
