A single dad out with his daughter on Valentine's Day was left a heartwarming note by complete strangers.
The anonymous message praised him as being a strong role model and has since gone viral.
The note read: "Hi there, Sorry to spy but my husband and I saw you out with your little date and were so impressed with what a great dad you are.
"From two adults who grew up without dads, it's so important to have a male role model at a young age.
"Keep up the good work dad! Dinner is on us!"
A picture of the note was posted on the social media site imgur, with the headline 'I wish I could thank them'.
Beneath it, the poster wrote: "As a single dad, I took my six-year-old daughter out to Valentine's dinner tonight when this happened.
"I wont lie, I teared up at the table. So, thank you random strangers. Thank you."
Since then, hundreds of people have posted positive messages of support on the site.
