The reality TV star shared an old family photo on Twitter.

She said she found a letter her dad wrote her just after high school. Kim, now 36, was 23 when he passed away.

“I found a three page letter my dad wrote me right after high school about life and it’s so special to have. I re-read it last night,” she posted to Twitter.

The letter has started a tradition for Kim, who writes to her kids – North West, 3, and Saint West, 1 – every year. She wrote on Twitter:

It’s a touching sentiment, and one that gives us a very personal look into the life of a family we spend a lot of time watching, and very little time trying to understand.
