A mourning father’s plea to Facebook to see his deceased son’s biggest moments has been answered.

John Berlin of St. Louis, Mo., posted a video to YouTube last week asking Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg for access to his dead son’s profile. He wanted to generate a “Look Back” video for 22-year-old Jesse, who died January 28, 2012.  These videos highlight photos, statuses and life events for Facebook users.

Berlin’s plea went viral, and Facebook granted his wish.

On Friday, Berlin posted his son’s Look Back video to his public Facebook page.

“First of all I just want to thank everyone for all the shares and support. We couldn’t have done this without you. This is the official Facebook video of my son Jesse Berlin,” he said.
