This woman’s thread was amazing. Her response to the Daily Mail even better

This woman’s memories of her dad at Christmas time struck a chord with thousands of people on Twitter and has been shared many times more.

Nowhere and no time do I miss my dad more acutely than in the men’s department of M&S at Christmas.

If I see another reasonable priced, deep red angora mix sweater with a ribbon round it I’m going to actually have a breakdown.

Many people responded with memories of their own (and you can read lots more of them here).

Oh, this. Solidarity, pal. My kryptonite is literally any useless object made of pewter which can be engraved with initials for a small extra cost.

I cried in Wilkinson’s the other day cause my dad loved all their Christmas stuff – the tackier, the brighter, the noisier, the sparklier the better. It’s the wee things eh? Hugs

Others – famous and not so famous – just got in touch to say how moved they had been.

Just been looking at this thread. Got to stop. Crying my eyes out – and not from any remembrance; you're just all such lovely people with lovely stories. Love to you all. And thanks, Rachel

And then this happened. It’s not the most profound part of the story, but it’s certainly the most satisfying.

@ORachaelO Hi Rachel, would it be ok to use your pictures for the MailOnline, please? Best, Conor

Really, honestly, my dad would turn in his grave if you put his picture in your bible of hate. You expressly do not have my permission.

No worries Rachel. If you change your mind pease let me know
