January 6, 2019 Updated: January 6, 2019

Unconditional love has no bounds and is unchanging. For this family, they are on the receiving end of something special, and they return the same tenfold.

Matt Cobrink, 53, greeted his father on Aug. 12, 2018, after returning from a week’s stay in New York to see his favorite New York Yankees player Aaron Judge.

It was probably the first time they had been apart since his mother passed away 25 years ago. When he arrived back in Los Angeles, his 88-year-old father was nearly swept off his feet as his son ran to greet him.

Matt’s sister Marcy shared a video of the reunion. She already knew just how her brother who has Down syndrome would respond.

“I expect that kind of reaction from him. Sometimes I won’t see him for a few days, and then I’ll go to his house or my dad will bring him over here, and he will kiss me like 20 times. He’s just really very loving and happy to see everybody!” Marcy said, according to People.

“I knew that my brother and my father are so closely attached, and I knew that after five days my brother was going to really be missing my father,” said Marcy.

This father-and-son reunion went viral in a week, with 14 million views and 17,000 comments. Many people were brought to tears.
