Fred, you are wonderful. And the love you shared for your wife is wonderful. You remind me of my own grandparents who didn't hit 75 years but were together til death do us part and truly loved each other til the end. You are a wonderful, inspirational man. God bless you.

This is an absolutely Precious Man, Company, and Song!  I, for one, thank you from the bottom of my heart for doing this for him and for the world! You have touched my heart so much! We too lost someone we loved very much... he was my step-son Daniel. He had a car accident and died one the same day after coming from seeing his daughter be born. She is beautiful and helps to keep our son always with us. God Bless!

My grandparents were like this... they used to sing to each-other and compete in ballroom dancing and bowling competitions.  My grandma passed 10 years ago and my  grandpa just this June and he would STILL  put out a wedding anniversary card for her every year.  A real life love story ....as in it wasn't all sunshine and flowers nope... it was fiery and tumultuous but enduring and real...   PS  go buy the song on itunes...  people like this deserve to be recognized and Green Shoe Studios did a WONDERFUL job!

It makes me so sad that so many aren't even sure if this kind of love still exists.  OF COURSE IT DOES.  I totally think this will be the type of story Dh & I will have if God willing we live long enough.  We started dating at 18 & 20 & have been together over 20 yrs.  We have had our share of tough times & lots of good times.  The biggest issue I see in others not believing in "this kind of love" is they forget that Fred & Loraine didn't have 75 yrs of pure bliss - it IS hard work too.  I am sure Fred would tell you that too!  We have had bad times, bad YEARS...but I love him completely - even when he frustrates me.  And we work on it & work on it & work on it & never give up.  Coming up on 21 yrs this fall & in an amazing place in our marriage again & getting ready to welcome a third child...and I literally couldn't be happier.  I also know there WILL be stormier times ahead, again...because such is life.  If you want love like this - be willing to endure hard times & find someone else who will as well.  When you come out the other side of the storm, your love is deeper & richer & stronger than ever.  I PROMISE.  I am not sure if either of us will ever be writing a love song, but I feel like our life is a love song...so that is plenty for me.  I HOPE that others do find that love.  It is for sure what has not only helped me through the roughest patches, but it has also taught me sooo much about myself in the process as well.  I think everyone should have it & I believe everyone can if they really do want it....you just have to want to take the bad WITH the good.
