Son's Touching Tribute To Mum With Alzheimers

Get out the tissues because this one is an absolute tearjerker.

With his mother's Alzheimers getting progressively worse, musician Joe Fraley decided to start playing his music for her.

The day before she moved into assisted living, Fraley recorded a video of one such moment - and it's incredibly touching.

Writing about the video, Fraley said he has been shocked by the attention it has received after going viral in recent days.

"I am a little embarrassed for posting something so personal," he said.

"I wasn't expecting all the attention it's been getting, but the fact that it has touched so many people makes it worth while [sic].

"I hope this video promotes awareness of this horrible disease... and encourages people to give their parents a big hug."

Sadly his mother no longer recognises Fraley.
