Sweethearts of the Day

For today’s featured sweethearts, a picture alone just wouldn’t do.  Get your tissues ready as you watch this heart-melting video of 96-year old Fred Stobuagh telling the poignant story of the love of his life, Lorraine, and their nearly 75 sweet years together.

Fred entered a singer song-writer contest with a love song he penned for his recently deceased wife, entitled “Oh Sweet Lorraine.” Green Shoe Studio, who hosted the contest, was so touched by the entry that they decided Fred’s letter and hand-written lyrics were worthy of professional recording. If this video doesn’t make you believe in true love, nothing will!
