While Thursday was officially the very last day of President Obama’s term in office, many people have spent today, inauguration day, saying their farewell to the 44th president. All sorts of hashtags about Barack and Michelle Obama have been trending on Twitter, people have offered their appreciation of the family on varying social media platforms, and watching the pair board their jet and depart for Palm Springs has emitted all sorts of emotions from people. Even celebrities and well-known figures are feeling the wave of sadness.

Many, who’ve had the chance to meet the Obamas and spend time in the White House, have used their platforms for the last week to thank him for his work and share their favorite memories of our first Black First Family. I can’t say you will feel better about this day after flipping through to see the candid photos and messages, but a few of these are sure to make you smile. #ThankYouObama
