Yep. Exactly right. This situation likely did not actually happen, it was created as a "sentimental story" chain/junk email thing for reasons unknown. I bet if you looked it up in Snopes, you'd find it or a variation of it.

I've received heaps of this stuff. It goes around offices and clogs up the email system. It's a real nuisance.
One of the things I wonder about these chain emails ... and maybe, if some of you are the ones who send this stuff around, you can help me with this question ... why is it that these chain emails tell a story, like this one did about the father and daughter, and they end the story, like this one did with the statement, "He then began to cry and walked away." OK. The story is finally finished.
But they can't stop there. They've got to keep going with trite cliche comments, like this one does:
"They say it takes a minute to find a special person, an hour to appreciate them, a day to love them; but then an entire life to forget them.
Take Time To Live..
To all my friends I wish you Enough!"
Really ... enough is enough already. Here's a New Year's Resolution choice ... how about resolving not to send/forward any more of these chain emails!!
Oh look ... here it is ... being discussed on Snopes ...
