Singing his mom a song

This is one of the most touching and heartwarming things you’re likely to see. Its a video of Joe Fraley playing a song to hi Mom who has Alzheimer’s. As he says in the description of the video “This was before she moved into assisted living, when she lived at home with me and my Dad.” He goes on to say that “I am a little embarrassed for posting something so personal. I wasn’t expecting all the attention it’s been getting, but the fact that it has touched so many people makes makes it worth while. My Dad and 3 siblings are proud as well. Thank you everyone so much for such kind words. I hope this video promotes awareness of this horrible disease….and encourages people to give their parents a big hug.”

Yesterday, Joe posted another video. This time he tells us “My Mom’s health has been deteriorating at an incredibly rapid rate and was put on hospice care a few weeks ago. She hasn’t eaten in almost three months, she’s been non responsive, comatose and it seemed as if we could lose her at any moment. My Dad and I went to see her yesterday and she had more life in her than I’ve seen in ages. I played her a new song I’ve been working on and her reaction made me really happy. I thought I’d share. Alzheimer’s is an odd disease, it’s amazing how much things can go up and down.”
