Julie Clarke from Tampa, Florida, and her little daughter Amelie used to have a happy life with their great man John Clarke. Unfortunately, their lives were turned upside down when John suddenly passed away at the age of 53 due to being stung by a wasp while doing yard work at the family’s home. Julie was broken, but she knew that she had to overcome everything and become her family’s breadwinner.

However, the little girl Amelie was too young to cope with her dad’s passing. For a week after the incident, she was not going to school. Julie knew that she had to do something to support her daughter after the sudden passing of her father. She came up with a beautiful way of making Amelie’s day special by leaving colorful notes with poignant quotes in her lunchbox to read.

“She would bring the lunch notes home and I’d take a picture and I always thought I could make a book when she graduated college or high school,” Julie Clarke told ABC News. “I knew I wanted to have a record of these notes I’d make for her.”

Julie started posting photos of her notes on an Instagram account called Amelie’s Lunch Notes so family members could see them. The post prompted more friends, classmates, teachers, and other members of their Florida community to write notes to Amelie. Each note received by the Clarke family is a note of encouragement for the little girl to be strong during this difficult time. Some of the notes are even sent to Julie who also needs help and comfort.

Although Amelie is too young to understand the longer words and sentences in the notes, Julie told that she wants to show them to her again when she gets older.

“I don’t think the message is getting across all the time, but I hope to save them for later and can use them to teach her lessons in the future. They just want you to feel better and they’re so comforting and it’s so nice to know that so many people are thinking of you and helping you get through the roughest time,” she said.
