‘I love you…always have': Touching video of elderly man serenading dying wife with tender love song goes viral.

Howard, 92, from Sarasota in Florida, sings “their love song”, “You’ll Never Know” by Rosemary Clooney, to Laura, 93 as she lies in her hospice bed. “I love you…always have,” Laura, who is blind and in her final days of hospice care, tells her husband in the video – before asking him to behave himself after she has gone. “This kind of thing between them, singing to each other, wasn’t uncommon in our family.

Erin writes that the song is particularly special to the pair as it used to comfort Laura while Howard was away fighting 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. Our family prefers this version because everyone always said Grandma had a voice just like Rosemary Clooney,” Solari wrote on her post. “After posting this video to Facebook, it began to go viral and all the outpouring of love lifted everyone’s spirits… including Grandma’s! 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 doesn’t stop her from saying the words to him (see at 1:00).

Behave,” as Howard continued to stroke her hair and a version of the love song “You’ll Never Know”, made famous by Alice Faye in the 1943 film Hello, Frisco, Hello, began to play. “You ought to know, for I haven’t told you so,” they sang, before Howard continued, “So, a million or more times. Our family along with the wonderful people from hospice are taking care of her and making sure she remains as pain-free and comfortable as possible while she prepares for her nearing departure.”
