As a little girl, Kris Farish spent a lot of time with her father on epic road trips in their family camper. They made memories to last a lifetime. Unfortunately, a tragic car accident would mean that Kris’s memories of these trips were all she’d have growing up. At 12, she was left fatherless.
The family never used that camper again. In fact, they went as far as giving it away.
This loss of her father was made harder by the loss of her memory-filled camper. She’d miss it for years to come.
Until one day…
Her loving husband Micah decided to do something. He set out on a search for the long-lost camper that his wife missed so much. Soon, he was able to find it through the vehicle identification number buried in some papers in their house. He didn’t hesitate. Micah told Kris he was headed to a bachelor party of all things, and he went on his way. He flew to California and bought the camper back. When she sees it? It’s the sweetest moment.
While her husband will never be able to change the fact that Kris grew up without her father, this act of kindness helped to ease the pain. It helped to reconnect her to her past. And now? They’ll make new memories in this very camper with their own two children. The tradition will live on.
