‘Sweet Lorraine’ — 96-Year-Old Writes Song for Late Wife + Submits It for a Contest [VIDEO]
If you’re the emotional type, then this story will require the use of tissue. I’m issuing a mascara alert because you’ll most likely be left in tears. Kidd Kraddick in the Morning featured this story of a 96-year-old widower who entered a singer-songwriting contest. Although he could not play an instrument or sing very well, he went ahead and sent in the song he wrote about his long time love, his wife Lorraine. The song he wrote about her spoke from the heart. It’s a song written about the time they spent together during their 73 years of marriage and the memories that he still has of her.
Watching and listening to this man’s story reminded me a lot of my grandparents and the love they shared for each other.
