Man Singing Love Song To Wife In Her Final Days Is Beautifully Heartbreaking


This quiet, peaceful moment between a husband and wife generates only with love. There are no fireworks, no flowers, no diamonds — nothing aside from a gentle touch and a meaningful song. 

And at the crux of this heartfelt video lies a simple reminder of what's really important.


Laura, 93, and Howard, 92, have been married for 73 years, according to their granddaughter, Erin Solari.

Solari explains that in the video, uploaded to Facebook and then YouTube, her grandmother is in hospice, "making peace with her final days," while her grandfather sings to her, standing by her side. 

Solari writes that he sings "You'll Never Know," by Rosemary Clooney with Harry James. It's their love song, and "the song that comforted her when he went away 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," according to the Facebook post.

"Moments before this video began, when Grandma heard that Grandpa was in the room, she asked if she could hold him. Grandpa cannot stand on his own, but he immediately pulled his wheelchair close to her bed ready to make it happen..."

...Solari adds. And he made it happen.

Though Laura is too weak to sing, she still manages to talk through some of the lyrics as Howard completes her sentences.

Laura begins: "You ought to know, for haven't I told you..."

To which Howard continues singing: "So, a million or more times..."

"I love you," he adds.

"Isn't he sweet? He likes me!" Laura says, inducing a quiet laughter amid inevitable tears.

Yes, he definitely likes her.
