I'm glad to have my parents with life. This comercial show me how important it is to be with our parents, enjoy every single day and moment with them. Seriously I can't imagine my life with them.

this makes me sad

My father was in hospice and suffering from dementia. Some days he was lucid, but more often than not, he wasn't. I chose not to see him before he passed away, because I didn't think I could bear the possibility that he wouldn't know who I was. I regret that decision now. This commercial drove home to me how important it is to be with our parents in their time of need, whether they know we're there or not. I love you, Dad! <3

I certainly am glad to see someone else kisses his parent(s) goodbye in this situation!

I first saw the video of this song the morning after my beloved father passed away and I absolutely sobbed! I haven't seen it in 5 years and it still makes me cry and I still miss him like crazy.

This so touched my heart. I've lost both my beloved parents over the last several years. Thank you for producing such inspirational commercials. I plan on watching each of them with my granddaughter, and discussing the lesson. Great teaching tool!

My father was dying of Alzheimer's, when my mom lovingly said, those same words. It was so meaningful to me. He died the next day in peace.

This reminds me of when my mom was at the hospital with me. I was 5 years old. My grandpa was dying, my mom was sad. She was crying. My grandpa had canser, however you spell it.

I just lost my Dad...He was buried a week ago...both of my parents were in hospital...felt like I was living the movie "The Notebook."...had no idea I was going to lose him then and I am RN...but I stayed with him from 2:00 pm until the next afternoon at 1:58pm...I had gathered closet family and at that last breath...I was there to "Mark the Moment."...He was the parent I shared the closest bond with...this is what makes it hard...but I did tell him he could "Just Let Go."...Dad...I miss you...always will...
