Student's beautiful note to his teacher brings the internet to tears

With the school year almost over, some students may bring gifts or letters of appreciation for their teachers. One boy in particular, however, made his teacher almost tear up with his note.

Twitter user @mainey_maine shared a letter one of his students left on his desk:

"To Mr. J," the letter started, "Thank you for being an awesome teacher and for being amazing! This school year was so fun and I enjoyed it because if you."

"I wish more teachers was like you. I will never forget you. I look at you like my dad. I never met my real dad but it okay because you treat me like I'm your son."

"You make me so happy. Always feeding me when I am hungry and hug me when I am sad. I will never forget you Mr. J. I love you and I will never forget about you! Love, Markus."

"This is too much man," Mr. J said, "I can't stop the tears."

The letter not only made Mr. J tear up; Twitter was abundant with reactions:
