Pic of Dying Dad's Final Wish for 1 More Beer With Sons Goes Viral
You'll have a tear in your beer thanks to 87-year-old Norbert Schemm, whose pic of his adult sons enjoying one more brewski with him at his deathbed has gone viral. "My grandfather passed away today. Last night all he wanted to do was to have one last beer with his sons," Adam Schemm tweeted this past Wednesday along with the photo, which shows Norbert smiling in his hospital bed as he holds a bottle of Bud Light in one hand. His wife of 65 years, Joanne, holds his other hand as sons Bob, Tom and John stand alongside them. “That moment meant so much to my grandfather,” Adam tells TODAY. “You can tell they all know what’s gonna happen, and they just want to enjoy being together. They all have this look of closure...It was the last 90 minutes that they really had him. They drank beer and talked about family and he made everyone promise to take care of my grandmother." Norbert passed away from colon cancer the following night.
