I can’t even imagine the pain and sadness that comes from losing your dad, especially at such a young age.
It’s simply something you can’t even put into words, especially being a kid and knowing that you won’t ever get to share any moments with your father again.
That’s exactly what happened to five-year-old Aydin Laborde, a die hard Buffalo Bills fan who lost his father earlier this year to a brain aneurism.
Aydin had the opportunity to meet his Buffalo Bills hero, star wide receiver Stefon Diggs, earlier this year in training camp on his birthday, and have a good conversation.
Aydin made a return to practice later in the season, where Diggs signed a football for him.
However, Diggs wasn’t ready to stop there, as the young man made another appearance for the Bills’ game against the Miami Dolphins this past week.
Diggs made his way to the sidelines and decided to give Aydin an early Christmas gift he’ll never forget.
He gave him a pair of custom made Nikes with blue, white, and red Bills colors, that had a picture of Aydin and his dad along the sides of the shoes.
Diggs shared in a Twitter post:
“Not many know what it’s like to lose they daddy for real. I remember it felt like I lost everything. I had to make myself a man. But it takes a village so be sure to always pay it forward! Love that is (Strong) Merry Christmas lil aydin”
