Now this will definitely make you shed a tear. The man in the video below has recorded a song for his beloved wife of 75 years, Lorraine, who died this past year.

Fred entered a YouTube singer-songwriter competition to record a video and his entry struck a chord.

In the below video he details their history together and how deeply he loved her – “the prettiest girl he ever saw”.

Fred told Green Shoe Studio that he was not a musician and said he was not a very good singer. He is 96 years old and he just wanted to get his song out there and dedicate it to his wife’s life.

The studio was so moved they gave him the opportunity to record his song ‘Sweet Lorraine’.

  1. What a wonderful tribute to your wife, Fred. Although not married as long as you I can relate to what being a widower is like. Di died nearly 2 years ago while we were in Italy. She was 63 Years old and we had been married a little over 38 years. The worst part is the loneliness. You’ve hit the jackpot, Fred. Congratulations, Lorraine’s memory lives on through your song.
