Watch this video of a man reunited with his family only when you have enough privacy to get a little more than misty-eyed!

Jeffrey’s wife posted this funny and heartwarming video of a surprise visit from Jeffrey’s brother, Axel, and mother, Madeline. Axel and Jeffrey had not seen each other in about four years, and Madeline and Jeffrey had not been together in a decade. Needless to say, there were laughs, exclamations, and tears to make up for lost time!

Axel arranged the surprise after obtaining a visa for Madeline who lives in Libreville, Gabon. She traveled 23 hours on a plane to make it to this joyful gathering! Jeffrey’s wife said, “Jeffrey and his mom had gotten by with keeping in touch via video chat and frequent phone conversations but 10 years is a long time without seeing each other. Money, distance, the visa, and just life being factors in the lengthy time apart.”

The video was posted on July 26 but has already gained over 1.2 million views on YouTube. Commenters on the viral video of the reunited family are gushing about the sweet moment confessing, “I’m crying right along with him!” and, “No matter how many times I replayed I still cried…”
