It’s an emotional time of year, when kids are becoming young adults and parents have to learn to let go. Graduation ceremonies are happening, feelings are running high, and everyone’s getting nostalgic. 18-year-old Brittany Gayler took a literal walk down memory lane with her dad, Jason Gaylor last Thursday. They’d found an old picture of him walking her to her very first day of school and decided to relive the moment for her last day, according to BuzzFeed:

Brittany told BuzzFeed, “I’ve always been so grateful that my parents have always been there for me.” But she admitted it was a little bit embarrassing, as her dad laughed and said she was a “cool teen.” They both said they teared up a little as they put one foot in front of the other down that last road.

The image of the two making their journey after so much time has passed touched a lot of people, but for a couple different reasons. First things first: Brittany’s dad looks good:

But there are some people who were simply touched by the heartwarming moment, and applauded these two for sticking together. It’s not that easy to be the dad of a teenage girl, and showing up for the important milestones is so important. Almost makes you tear up:
