Get out the tissues. This video ruined me. With so much going wrong in today’s world, this video is a great reminder that we all have moments. Those moments are opportunities. We can make the most of them or let them pass by. This is what love is like.
Fred Stobaugh is his name. Here’s the story on Huffington Post:
Fred Stobaugh, from Peoria, Ill., wrote the lyrics to what he called “Oh Sweet Lorraine” after his 91-year-old wife died last April. The couple met in 1938 and were married for 73 years, according to ABC News.
“Oh sweet Lorraine,” the song begins. “I wish we could do all the good times over again.”
Stobaugh, who’s not a musician, entered the lyrics into a singer-songwriter contest at Green Shoes Studios in Illinois.
