The Clean Cut: Tall man brought to his knees by surprise visit from mom

Posted August 9

Jeffrey Mayi, a 6-foot-7-inch man, was brought to his knees when his mother, whom he hadn’t seen for 10 years, surprised him at his home.

Mayi’s wife, Shannon, who filmed the scene, said his mother spent about 23 hours on an airplane from Libreville, Gabon, to see her son and her new grandchild.

“Jeffrey and his mom had gotten by with keeping in touch via video chat and frequent phone conversations, but 10 years is a long time without seeing each other. Money, distance, the visa, and life (were) factors in the lengthy time apart,” read the description below the video.

In addition to the visit from his mother, Mayi was surprised by his brother, who flew in from Florida.

“This video is the epitome of what an upstanding man he is. He's kind, loving, God-fearing, patient, hardworking, and a loving father and family man. I'm grateful to God that he's mine and I'm his,” continued the description.
