A Letter From Fred ~ A Love Song

I first saw this on Facebook, and I want to share it in case you haven't seen it.
It is beautiful and touching.
The Facebook link came originally from Jim Daly of Focus on the Family.
I would like to quote from Mr. Daly's blog, as he says it so well:
Fred Stobaugh is 96 years old, and he misses the woman he spent 75 years of his life with: his wife Lorraine. So when he read in the paper that Green Shoe Studio held an online songwriting contest just six weeks after Lorraine’s death, Fred (who’s not a musician) submitted via postal mail the handwritten lyrics to a love song he wrote as a tribute to his late wife – “Oh Sweet Lorraine.”
The simple words of love after a life well-lived touched the core of the younger men and women running the contest at the studio. They recorded Fred’s song with professional musicians. In the video, you have an opportunity to listen to the song for the first time along with Fred – and it will be difficult to keep the tears from flowing.
