This is a beautiful story. It touched me. I thought Ok I'll watch this later... I fully watched it. **Watch it right up to the end for the incredible photo's.

It's a heart warming and an extremely - Selfless Act of love.

I think if you watch , many of you will find it just a warm story and there's not much more I can say. What an incredible woman.

For me I watched it on youtube because I got a better picture. My computer is a bit messed up. I got a good feeling and try watching the entire thing and you'll see why.
She was an incredible woman.
