It’s been said that the mind forgets but the heart doesn’t. Married for 60 years, Melvyn has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and that was not easy for his wife Doris. Some days, he barely recognizes his wife but one morning, Melvyn proved to his wife that the man she married for years is still there. Melvyn wandered away, in search of flowers for Mother’s day, unbeknownst to his wife. It was Melvyn’s yearly promise to bring flowers to his wife since the birth of their first child and he wasn’t going to let Alzheimer’s stop him now. The police who found Melvyn were touched by his wish, so they helped him get what he needed and brought him back home. Such a touching story! Click the video below and watch how beautiful story.
The other awesome part of the story is that the policemen took care of Melvyn’s flowers when he came up short at the cashier. Knowing that there are still people like this really brings the faith back to humanity. What did you think of this story?
