A Real Love Story

Love Letter From Fred

Fair warning, this is not one of my typical blog postings.

Something this special could not be ignored.

There are people who don’t believe in true love. I am not one of those people. I came across this video today and quickly realized it embodies every ounce of what I believe to be the core of a real relationship and true love.

The final result is magic.

This is the story of Fred, a 96-year-old man who just lost his wife of 73-years. He spotted a singer-songwriter contest hosted by Green Shoe Studio. He decided to enter, not online as the ad in his local paper instructed, instead sending a manila envelope with a handwritten song for his late wife entitled, “Oh Sweet Lorraine.”

You’ll quickly see how Fred gushes over his late-love. In turn, the good folks at Green Shoe Studio, gush over Fred. They give him a priceless gift and now they are sharing it with us.

Enjoy, but I’d grab a tissue first.

Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
