Father buys son beer posthumously

When Matt Goodman turned 21, he wished his father could have been there to celebrate with him.

Little did he know that his dad, who had passed away six years earlier from esophageal cancer, had already made plans to attend — not in person, but in spirit.

John Goodman left his son a $10 bill to buy his first beer, a secret his mom and sister kept from him all those years.

On December 6, the Taunton, Massachusetts resident used the money to have his first legal drink.
