Kingsley Ebenezer, whose comments were received by more 4,000 likes, says: “I pray for you and your father. May the LORD give you a good job so that you take care of your father and may God keep your father alive to eat the fruit of his labour.”

Sweetest pPicture ever and Useful Info, which helped share the picture also put a caption that reads: “A poor farmer supported his son to complete his graduation; My father is my biggest pride said the son. How many likes does this great father deserve?”

The parents are alive thanks to God who always supports us, encourages us and just want to see us have a better future. This picture really shows the true love between a father and the dearest son who is proud to present his grateful parents.
