Former NFL player and Super Bowl Champion Ben Utecht's love letter to his wife and daughters has gone viral. After a series of head injuries while playing football, Utecht is now losing his memories. According to CBS News, Utecht decided to use his new career as a singer to help keep the memories of his family alive. He wrote this love letter to his wife and daughters and put it to song.
Utecht told CBS News, "One of the things that scares me the most is to be trapped in a coffin inside my mind," Utecht said. "To be surrounded by people that I know that I love and not know who they are or be able to recognize their role in my life."
This song is a wonderful reminder to cherish the days and the memories we have with those we love. We should never take for granted what we have.
