An Elderly Man With Alzheimer’s Went Missing… But He Wasn’t Lost. Wait Til You See Where He Was.

Alzheimer’s disease is a terrible condition that steals away loved ones from us by destroying their minds. Over the years, they begin to forget who they are and who is around them. Although the mind may forget, the heart never does, and this touching story proves just that. Three years ago, Melvyn Amrine was diagnosed with the disease. Ever since then, he has faded away and his wife Doris lovingly took care of him. They had been married for 60 years. When he suddenly went missing, Doris was in a panic.

Melvyn went missing before Mother’s Day.

His loving wife was frantic to find him. He had Alzheimer’s disease and could get himself hurt or lost.

Luckily, cops finally located him. When he returned home, he had a big bouquet of roses for his wife.

(H/T Daily Mail) Every year since the birth of their first child, Melvyn had bought his wife a large bouquet of flowers. In a moment of clarity, he realized what day it was going to be soon and went out to bring them home to her. Even though he cannot remember when he proposed to Doris or how, he knows that he loves her very much and wanted to show her that (even if he needed some help). This is the kind of story that breaks your heart – and warms it – all at once. Share it.

Dogs Don’t Judge Their Humans For Anything, Even Being Homeless. So Touching.

The population of homeless people in America is not shrinking, and it’s something most of us try to ignore. We turn a blind eye when we walk down the street and push it out of our minds so we don’t have to feel guilty or weird or unsettled by their unfortunate circumstance. But for many of the homeless fighting stay alive each day, they’re able to find hope through the unwavering love of their companions: dogs.

Unlike us, these animals don’t care that their owners have fallen on such hard times. Many of their owners sacrifice having their own meals in order to make sure their best friends don’t go hungry. Organizations like Pets of the Homeless have set out to offer aid to these beloved animals by providing food and veterinary assistance to homeless animals across the United States and Canada. They have also shared these sobering photos of the pets with their owners showing how undeniable and powerful the bond is between each of them.
