Tom Hanks’ mother has died, the actor revealed Tuesday in a touching message he shared online. Janet Marylyn Frager was 84.

“This beauty? My mom. She was the difference in many lives. Many lives,” Hanks wrote of his mother, who was a hospital worker. “We say goodbye to her today. Safe crossing, mom!”

Hanks’ wife, Rita Wilson, also paid tribute to the late mother of four.

“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,” Wilson wrote on Instagram.
