Today, Tom Hanks is mourning the loss of his mother, Janet Marylyn Frager, who passed away at the age of 84. The actor took to Instagram to share a vintage photograph of his mom with a sweet tribute.
“This beauty? My mom. She was the difference in many lives. Many lives. We say goodbye to her today. Safe crossing, mom! Hanx,” he wrote of his mother, who had a career as a hospital worker.
His longtime wife, Rita Wilson, also honored Frager with a heartwarming photo of the matriarch. “This wonderful lady gave birth to my husband, and three other children. Thank you for bringing my love into the world. She is at peace now,” Wilson wrote.
Hanks, who turned 60 this weekend, has three siblings: Jim, Sandra, and Larry. Their father, Amos Hanks, passed away in 1992. We’re sending our wishes to the Hanks family today.
