Lady Battling Alzheimer's Lights Up When She Realizes Wedding Photo On Husband's Apron Is Of Her

A man has shared the wholesome moment that his dementia-battling mom lit up when she started to recognize her wedding photograph on her husband's apron. Betty Pettit, 85, who lives in Mooresville, North Carolina, is currently dealing with end-stage Alzheimer's, which has seen her not recognize herself or know who her family members are. But in one sweet interaction with her husband Bob, 85, Betty found herself looking at a photo from one of the biggest days of her life, which caused memories to come flooding back. Being encouraged by her son, Joshua, 48, who was recording the moment, Betty was initially asked if she recognized the photo, which left her a little confused. Then, pointing at himself on the apron, Bob asked who Betty thought that was, while Josh asked who was the pretty girl he was with. The father and son then said to Betty that it looked like a wedding photo, and when she started to make sense of who was who, the 85-year-old lit up, saying to Bob, "That's my guy!" Bob, with a rising across his face, then said: "That's my girl."
