Tom Hanks has shared a heartfelt tribute to his mother on Instagram this morning, after she passed away on Tuesday. 

His mother was 84 years old. 

Sharing an old portrait of Janet Marylyn Frager, Hanks paid his respects for all that she has done for him throughout his life. 

The actor was surrounded by family and friends for her memorial at the State Theatre that held many memories for Hanks. 

Her passing comes just days after the actor celebrated his 60th birthday.
