You would think I visited an onion factory after I watched this video. With all the hate going on in today’s world, it was truly refreshing watching a gentle giant expressing his love for his mother.
The video filmed by his wife Shannon has been watched more than 400,000 times. In her own words:
“Jeffrey was born here in the United States. He was raised back and forth between Paris,France and Libreville,Gabon. His mom was a flight attendant. Jeff’s brother Axel got a visa in place for their mom, Madeline, who lives in Libreville, Gabon. (About 23 hours of traveling by plane) Jeffrey had not seen his brother (who lives in South Florida) in about 4 years. Axel let me know the day before that he and his mother would be flying in for a surprise visit. I cleaned the house nice and kept the secret from Jeffrey. 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. After we had our son, Christian (her first born grandchild) it was a must that she come and meet him. SURPRISE!!!! Jeffrey is 6’7″and works as a Carpenter. This video is the epitome of what an upstanding man he is. He’s kind, loving, God fearing, patient, hardworking,and a loving father and family man. I’m grateful to God that he’s mine and I’m his💞💞💞. Thank you all for all of your support and interest in our story. God bless, love one another.”
