“Ain’t a woman alive that can take my mama’s place.” – Tupac

Tom Hanks is mourning the passing of his mother, Janet Marylyn Frager, who departed this life on Tuesday. She was 84.

The award-winning actor paid tribute to his mother in a post on his Instagram page that read, “This beauty? My mom. She was the difference in many lives. Many lives. We say goodbye to her today. Safe crossing, mom! Hanx”

Tom’s wife, Rita Wilson, shared the portrait above with the caption, “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.”

My condolences to the Hanks family during this difficult time.
