As soon as Gayler saw the photo, he knew he wanted to recreate it with his daughter on her last day of high school. So, on Brittany Gayler’s last day, her father walked her inside creating a pretty heartwarming moment.

“It was very bittersweet walking with him,” Brittany Gayler told Today. “It’s definitely a moment I’m going to remember forever. When I posted the tweet and going back and forth through the pictures, it just amazes me how fast it goes by. It feels like yesterday that we were taking that first picture.”
Many people on social media also joked about Gayler and how it seems like he hasn’t aged since the first picture.
“When everyone kept asking why my dad hasn’t aged and if he was Benjamin Button, my first reaction was, ‘Have you seen him in person?”’ Brittany Gayler said to Today. “But I do have to be honest. When I went back and looked at the pictures, I did notice that he still looks young.”
The picture will sure be a memory the pair will cherish forever.
“I am definitely blessed beyond words to have a dad that has always been my best friend,” Brittany Gayler told The Huffington Post.
