On love: Oh Sweet Lorraine

It’s been long enough that anyone who follows my blog has probably already seen this video. I first saw it last week when one of my friends on Facebook posted it. I watched the whole thing (about 10 minutes, but it goes by fast) and, I must confess, by the time it was done, I was crying. It’s true. Perhaps that’s just what happens when you get to a certain age (uh, well, let’s put it this way … AARP has been searching for me).

Anyway, the video has now gone viral, which is awesome, because I think Fred deserves the attention it has brought him. But for any who have yet to enjoy it, here is the wonderful video about Fred and his undying devotion to the love of his life.

BTW – I bought the song, just because I thought Fred and Lorraine deserved. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve listened to it.

PS – Many thanks to Jacob Colgan from Green Shoe Studio for recognizing such a beautiful story and for investing his time and energy into making a dream come true for Fred.

    I hadn’t seen the video, Dave. Thank you so much for posting, it’s beautiful, absolutely beautiful. You’re right, it was certainly a tearjerker.

      Glad you enjoyed it, Jill. I was so touched by it I just couldn’t help but share it.

    I’ll definitely buy the song. I definitely used up a number of tissues during the video. Thanks for posting, Dave!

      I’m so glad you liked it, Marie. It really touched me deeply and I wanted others to hear their story and see what a wonderful couple they were. You can tell his heart just aches at his loss. His words were heartfelt and beautiful. Buy the song … you won’t regret it. I’ve played it many, many times already.

    Really moving. I’d show it to my wife, but she’d spend the rest of the day bawling if I did!

      Ha ha. I’ll tell you, it certainly is a tearjerker. It got me going, that’s for sure. Glad you enjoyed it.
