Jon Bon Jovi is keeping his mother, Carol Bongiovi’s memories alive after her death at 83.

The Bon Jovi frontman took to Instagram on Wednesday, July 10, to post a loving tribute for his mother featuring a snippet from the band’s Story of Love music video.

"Momma, We carry you with us Always [two red heart emojis]," he wrote in the caption of the video that chronicled some of his intimate family videos from his childhood to his younger days.

In the clip, Bon Jovi, 62, delivered a touching performance with the track off the band's 2020 album.

"Fathers love daughters like mothers love sons / They've been writing our story before there was one / From the day you arrive, 'til you walk, 'til you run / There is nothing but pride, there is nothing but love," he serenaded while playing guitar in front of a wall filled with family photos.

The It’s My Life hitmaker’s tribute on social media comes a day after his mother died on Tuesday, July 9.

"Our mother was a force to be reckoned with. Her spirit and can-do attitude shaped this family. She will be greatly missed," he said in a statement to People Magazine on behalf of the family.
