He sings her love song
Laura and Howard have been married for 73 years. On his wife's deathbed, Howard sings their love song together for them - and is now causing tears to people all over the world.
Laura (93) and Howard (92) spent most of their lives together. They were married for 73 years. But their time together threatens to end. Because Laura is dying.
The video below was made in a hospice trying to make Laura as enjoyable as possible for the last days of her long life of love. On her deathbed, her husband Howard sings a very special song for her. "You'll never know how much I miss you" by Alice Faye is the couple's love song.
Laura sang it for Howard when he had to go to war during the Second World War. From now on, this one song was her song. They sang together at family gatherings and took turns. Even when they renewed their vows after 50 years of marriage, they sang this song together.
In the video Howard sings the song mostly alone, Laura wants to weak to support him. Nevertheless, the love of the two is omnipresent to each other. Even after more than seven decades together, the two are still a heart and a soul. Not only Howard is moved and has to wipe some tears from his face. The other present family members are obviously very touched. You can hear it by their voices.
Although Laura is almost blind today and can hardly recognize more than a few shadows, she still manages to look her husband in the eye. Her words must be repeated to Howard because he does not hear so well anymore. Besides, he can not stand by his wife's bed without help. Nothing, however, keeps the couple from enjoying that romantic moment.
The video was shot by Erin Solari , the couple's granddaughter. She posted the video on Facebook, where it has now been viewed more than four million times. She is happy to have captured this "precious and heartbreaking moment". Incidentally, Howard does not sing the version of Alice Faye's song in the video, but Rosemary Clooney and Harry James. "Our family prefers this version because everyone has always said that grandma has the same voice as Rosemary Clooney, " Erin writes to her Facebook post.
Shortly after the very moving clip was made, Laura was released from the hospice. She is now allowed to spend the last days of her life at home with her family and husband.
TLDR This was the song my grandmother would sing when my grandfather went to fight in World War II. She is 93, he is 92, and they have been married for 73 years! Now he is the one singing to her as she prepares to go away. My grandparents Laura and Howard have been married 73 years. Howard is 92 and Laura is 93. Laura (Grandma) is at a hospice facility making peace with her final days. I was lucky enough to capture this precious, heart-melting moment between the two of them. Howard (Grandpa) is singing to her love song, the song that comforted her when he went to fight in World War II. At family gatherings, it was not uncommon for the two of them to sing this song together, each taking a verse and serenading the other. In fact, after fifty years of marriage, they renewed their vows and performed this song as a duet for the entire family at the reception. Sadly, Grandma is now too weak to sing, but that does not stop her from saying the words to him (see at 1:00). Howard then takes over the rest of the song to her while stroking her face. Moments before this video began when Grandma heard that Grandpa was in the room, she asked if she could hold him. Grandpa can not stand on his own, but he pulls his wheelchair close. My cousin, Serena, who is a physical therapist, helped him to his feet and held him up throughout the entire song.You might say there is a sign that says, "Patient blind." That is because she has macular degeneration so she can not see much of anything but shadows and light. That does not stop her from looking into her love's eyes. Grandpa, on the other hand, performed in the video "You'll Never Know" performed by Rosemary Clooney with Harry James. Grandma's got a voice just like Rosemary Clooney.After reading this video to Facebook, it started to go viral and all the out of love everyone's spirits ... including Grandma's! Hospice needs to be made good enough to go home. Grandma Laura Virginia is resting with us peacefully at home. Departure and departure for departure. We all thank you so much for the love and child words. In case you do not catch it, I think the sweetest moment of all is at 1:00 - Laura: You know, I have not told you- Howard: (Singing, Finishing the line for her) -Sooooo a million or more times ...

The youtube video has a few subtleties to help you understand what grandma is saying.https: //youtu.be/wWPOG_hxkTEPosted by Erin Solari on Saturday, September 12, 2015
