This video of an elderly man with Alzheimer’s buying his wife flowers on Mother’s Day will bring you to tears
We’re a hardened bunch in the Lost At E Minor office (ok, ok, granted, we do run the odd cute animal post every now and then), but even we were deeply moved when watching this video about Melvin, who suffers from Alzheimer’s, and his heartfelt determination to buy a bunch of roses for his beautiful wife Doris, who has taken care of him for him for so many years.
When he went missing one day, Doris feared the worst. But he was tracked by the police down en route to the flower shop. And he couldn’t be persuaded to return until he got what he wanted. Aw. We just melted.
