  Having been married for 75 years, after his wife passed away this man wrote the song. Others took it from there.

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.
