Title: 96 year old man writes a song
Post by: Danny on August 28, 2013, 05:21:24 PM
  Having been married for 75 years, after his wife passed away this man wrote the song. Others took it from there.

A friend sent me this link today. It's worth the 9 minutes.

Anyone else download this song from iTunes?  I did and have not only been playing it on the computer but I've been playing it on piano and guitar for singing along.  It's a great little melody.

That is so touching and poignant.  Really, thanks for sharing it.  Fred and Lorraine were lucky.  Reminds me to live in gratitude for those in my life.
