“But it was like, ‘I don’t know if I’m gonna be able to get everything out that I wanna get out.’ It would be around dad’s passing,” Henry adds.
For Oakley’s mom who was watching behind the scenes, that message was spot on. “My dad had a stroke and he couldn’t talk anymore,” she reveals.
“Do you have any objects for him?” Henry asks the YouTuber. “I do not,” Oakley replies.
When asked if he knew if anyone had served in the armed forces on his mom’s side of the family, Oakley was at a loss. But little did he know, his mom had an object that spoke to that exact message.
“It’s this guy,” Oakley’s mom says while holding up a photo of her late father.
