The video started with reading Ben from the first page of his gift, in which his wife wrote a note from their daughter.

& # 39; I can't wait to make you proud of everything I achieve in life as I grow up with the best dad ever there was. Love Marlee & # 39 ;, it was said.

The novel then begins to tell the story of Ben's character showing his daughter the many wonderful times she might have in the future.

Am reading aloud, said: “Good morning sleepy head, I have been awake for a while. Sipping coffee on your bed while your dreams make you smile. & # 39;

But it soon became too much for Ben to start sobbing, which Samantha admitted: & # 39; I knew it would make you cry. & # 39;

Ben reassembled himself and continued: "I wonder where your mind is going when your eyes are closed and I wish I knew the worlds you were traveling to.

& # 39; I soon know that you will live your own story, and it will be chapters without me, but life is a journey and it is pretty good.

& # 39; Only you call me dad and of all my jobs this is the best I've ever had. Now I am thinking of things that you, Marlee, could do or where you could end up and what awaits you.

& # 39; So before mom wakes up, listen to me and tell me what I think you'll be later. & # 39;
