Mum, Julie Clarke, has spent the last year sharing her inspirational lunch box notes to her six-year-old daughter on Instagram.

"Amelie was starting kindergarten and I wanted to do something special," Clarke told the Parent Toolkit. "She likes getting this colourful piece of love out of her lunchbox."

Sadly, Amelie's dad died earlier this month from a wasp sting. According to WTSP, Clarke's husband had no idea he was allergic.

"He said, 'I have to call 911.' I'm like, 'are you sure - for a bee sting?' He said, 'my face is going numb,' and I called 911," Clarke told the news outlet.

Within an hour he had stopped breathing. 

As a way to cheer up Amelie, one of her classmates wrote a lunch box note to her, reports the Huffington Post

The note said: "It's okay to be sad Amelie, Love from Alice."

It didn't take long for more of her friends to send their own lunch box notes, which Clarke has shared on Instagram.

Now, Clarke is continuing to write notes, some reminding Amelie of how amazing her dad was.
