However, he refused to sell this painting because it reminded him of his daughter. He also left a note behind for her because he never knew if he’d see her again. Tracy reads the letter in which Edward expresses his regrets for their distance, and cutting her out of his will. He found the painting and made it his inheritance to her to prove that he loves her and forgives her.
