'Don't Cry for Me:' Heartbroken Parents Find the 'Will' of Their Late 8-Year-Old Daughter
A deadly disease stole a little girl from her parents, leaving them nothing but pain and sorrow. However, what she left behind, swelled their hearts up, bringing tears of joy to their already weeping eyes.
At just 8 years old, Małgosia Kląskała from Wrocław in Poland passed away on September 25, 2021, after battling neuroblastoma; a rare type of cancer. A Facebook post was shared by her mother, Anna, on Małgosia's account, set up by the mom to share her daughter's journey.
The post included quotes and pictures from a "will" that Kląskała left behind for her mom and father, Marcin. "Don't cry for me," the "Little Gosia," as she was called, wrote, encouraging her parents to enjoy their lives and the time they have left on the planet.

Anna expressed in the post that she had no clue what gave her baby the idea to pen a letter to her and her husband to read after they passed. The grieving mother penned:
"When I read this, I was frozen that she was so ready that she even thought about the will... "
That being said, Anna wrote that the late "Little Gosia" was prepared for anything. The mom stated that her daughter had tissues if someone needed to wipe their hands and always set out her attire for the next day.
Out of the many wishes the 8-year-old left behind, she asked them not to argue and hoped they had fond memories of her. The mom wrote that she was deeply touched by the letter and felt inspired to share it with those following Kląskała's struggle online.
It ripped through the life of high school student Brittany Walters.
"Little Gosia" hoped that the family had some souvenirs to remember her by. Moved by this, Anna asked her fellow Facebook users if they had anything to keep the memory of her baby alive, including photos of them with Kląskała or a touching story about her, among other suggestions.
A storm of love brewed in the comment section, with many individuals posting pictures of "Little Gosia." One individual shared several snapshots that appeared to be Kląskała enjoying herself with a friend.
A person going by Magdalena Żywirska posted a cute snap of the late little girl holding a chicken. Overall, the post received almost 600 comments and just over 1000 shares.
In a follow-up post, the mother appeared to be talking about how her other children, aged 4 and 6 years old, she and her husband have been struggling to accept the death. She also reminisced, expressing:
"We share memories of how Gosia sang songs...when we were riding go-karts or splashing together in the aquapark."
Anna shared the address of her daughter's gravesite for all those that asked, thanking them for showing up for "Little Gosia." Kląskała was buried on October 1, 2021.
Cancer can be a devastating disease. Just like parents Anna and Marcin, it ripped through the life of high school student Brittany Walters whose mom passed away from malignancy.
As a response and in a loving gesture, one of her schoolmates Nyla Covington who won Homecoming Queen, gave the crown to Walters in honor of her late mother. Covington gave Walters a big hug and then took off the crown and placed it on her head.
She told the grieving daughter that her mom was a queen. Losing a family member can be crushing, but a little empathy can begin to heal one's heart, whether one receives love from beyond the grave or from a fellow student.
