A grieving father’s wish granted – to see his deceased son’s “A Look Back” video from Facebook.
John Berlin, of St. Louis, uploaded a video to YouTube on Wednesday asking Mark Zuckerberg and the Facebook team to get access to his son’s video. “I’m calling out to Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook. You’ve been putting out these new (A Look Back) movies –that everyone has been sharing, and I think they’re great…but I would like access to (my) son’s video…” Berlin’s emotional video went viral. PIX-11 News helped connect Berlin and Facebook. And yes Facebook delivered, granting the father’s wish!!
Berlin posted the following comment after the good news: “The response is overwhelming. FB contacted us and they’re going to work on that vid. I want to thank everyone, for your support. My son was 21 and died of natural causes, his autopsy came back undetermined. He is proof that there are no guarantees in life. Hug your children kiss them. Tell them you love them every single day. God Bless”
(According to Facebook’s terms, when someone dies, their page is memorialized. However, Facebook does not give family members access to the deceased person’s page or memorial page)
