87-year-old Norbert Schemm from Wisconsin, USA, wanted to spend his last moments with his family by his side and talk about some fond old memories over beer.

Hours after his death, his grandson Schemm shared a group picture of the last sweet moment.

The post went on to collect over 4K comments and 30K retweets on Twitter alone.

As per a report on BBC, Schemm said, "My grandpa had been relatively healthy over the course of his life but it was on the Sunday last week while he was in hospital that they realised it would be the end. He called his grandchildren to tell us on the Monday."

"We took the picture Tuesday night and then he died from stage four colon cancer on Wednesday. My dad told us that grandpa had wanted a beer and now when I look at that picture, it gives me solace," he further added.

The post resonated through the minds of many other Twitter users and they shared their similar experiences on the microblogging platform.

A man named Ben Riggs shared a picture with his grandfather, who had expressed his desire to drink beer and smoke a cigar before dying.

Riggs wrote, “I don’t know you... but I felt this. Days before my grandpa passed he let my dad and I know he wanted a cigar and a beer. We made it happen. I’m so sorry for your loss. Your grandpas smile is one for the books!”

Others chimed in with their anecdotes.
