    "Sweet Lorraine" (song) ...... a man's memory of his wife & life (75 yrs together)

    96 yr old entered a Music writing contest...... his 'song' ... is # 9 on iTunes right now. "Sweet Lorraine " was written for his wife , a woman he knew for 75 yrs, and was married to for 73 yrs.

    Featured Video - Media - Mike Huckabee

    Miley Cyrus took a lot of flak this week for her raunchy performance at the MTV Video Awards. But she was hardly alone. Most of the performers stripped down, cursed and gyrated in crude ways. They think that’s what it takes to sell a song. But they’re wrong. Ask Fred Stobaugh of Illinois. Last April, he lost his wife of 73 years, Lorraine. Fred says she was the prettiest girl he ever saw, and he fell in love at first sight. After her death, he was sitting alone when he started humming a simple tune about her and wrote it down. He called it “Oh Sweet Lorraine.” He entered it in a songwriting contest. The sponsor, Green Shoe Studio, couldn’t accept a handwritten song, but they were so moved, they produced the song, with a video telling the story behind it. Well, the video went viral. And this week, among all the sex-drenched tunes by Lady Gaga and Robin Thicke, you’ll find “Oh Sweet Lorraine,” 96-year-old Fred Stobaugh’s song of undying love for his late wife, perched at #9 on iTunes’ top 10 chart. I hope it makes it to number one, as a reminder that all a song really needs to be popular is for it to touch our hearts. - Mike Huckabee

    I found this : https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/oh...ob/id676472051

    If you have any 'heart' at all .... you'll love what they did....

    That is a great song. I sit here now typing this on our 48th Anniversary. My how the time fly's. My wife is sitting in her chair talking to
    my mother. This year would have been mom and dads anniversary 73rd, but dad passed back on December 27, 2012.
    They were Blessed in their marriage, I have also been Blessed in mine. The song was almost an anniversary gift to us. Thanks for posting.

    I think the 'story' ... in the first video and is reaction to them being willing to record it, and seeing his reaction when he first heard it ..... says it all.
