In a short video titled “My appeal to Facebook,” John Berlin fought back tears earlier this week as he explained why he was sharing his video message.

Berlin’s video came after most of internet rejoiced reliving their biggest Facebook moments through a Lookback video created by the social networking site on its tenth anniversary.

However, Berlin was desperate to generate a ‘Look Back’ video for his son, 22-year-old Jesse, who died Jan. 28, 2012. Berlin wanted to see the videos highlight photos, statuses and life events for his son.

Berlin’s plea to the social media giant went viral, and Facebook granted his wish. Now, Berlin has shared Jesse’s Look Back video on YouTube.
