The final image that Tony Bennett took before he passed away has surfaced again.

At the age of 96, the singer of "I Left My Heart in San Francisco" passed away on Friday.

On June 20, he posted a picture of himself and Susan on Instagram.

The duo was wearing purple shirts for Alzheimer's Awareness Month when the photo was taken.

The adorable photo was captioned, "June is Alzheimer's & Brain Awareness Month."

“#GoPurple with Susan and I, and @alzassociation in honor of the more than 6 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s. #ENDALZ,” he added.

The two held up a sign that had the hashtag “ENDALZ.”

Bennett and Susan have been wed since 2007.

The family of the 20-time Grammy Award winner said in February 2021 that he had been given an Alzheimer's disease diagnosis in 2016.

At that time, he tweeted, "Life is a gift, even with Alzheimer's."

According to his family, who provided confirmation of the crooner's health news to AARP magazine, he started exhibiting symptoms in full in 2018 while he was working on an album with his friend and fellow musician Lady Gaga. 

Susan said, "There's a lot about him that I miss. "Because he's no longer the same Tony... However, when he sings, the old Tony comes out.

In August 2021, Bennett announced his formal retirement from performing live.

According to his son Danny Bennett's statement to Variety, "There won't be any more concerts." He is a talented performer, therefore this was a difficult choice for us to make. However, one was produced on a physician's prescription.

"The traveling, not the singing, is what's important. He gets tired, you see," Danny said.

For more than 40 years, the 69-year-old has served as his father's manager.

The decision has been taken that doing concerts right now is simply too much for him, Danny continued. For example, we don't want him to stumble on stage – just a simple example. He can sing, so we're not concerned about that. Physically speaking, we are concerned about human nature.
