Husband who lost memory to Alzheimer's has moment of clarity and goes on mission to buy wife flowers for Mother's Day... with a little help from some cops
The day before Mother's Day this year, police received a call from a wife frantic because her husband, who suffers Alzheimer's disease, had gone missing from the Little Rock, Arkansas home
Police found Melvin Amrine two blocks from their home, unable to tell officers where he lives.
However, he wasn't confused as to where he was going: he was buying his wife Doris flowers for Mother's Day, as he had every year since she had given birth to their first child.
A frantic Doris Amrine was relieved when she saw her husband of 60 years walking up their front stairs in the company of the police officers, but her relief turned to joy when he presented her with the carefully selected bouquet.
