Celebrity breakups get people talking—but sometimes the constant news cycle about people splitting up can be depressing. Doesn’t anyone stay together anymore?
Laura and Howard have. They’ve been married for 73 years, and in this video posted by their granddaughter, you can see 92-year-old Howard singing to his 93-year-old wife.
Laura, who is blind because of macular degeneration, was at a hospice facility as she nears her final days. Erin Solari, who posted the video, explained that her grandparents have sung this song to each other since World War II, when it comforted Laura while Howard was away. The song is “You’ll Never Know,” as performed by Rosemary Clooney with Harry James. “Our family prefers this version because everyone always said Grandma had a voice just like Rosemary Clooney,” Solari wrote.
The final verse of the song goes, “If there is some other way to prove that I love you, I swear I don’t know how. You’ll never know if you don’t know now, you’ll never know if you don’t know now.” Well, there can be no doubt that Laura and Howard love each other.
In the description of her video, which was posted Sept. 20, Solari wrote that the outpouring of support in the YouTube comments has lifted the family’s spirits. Her grandmother is resting peacefully at home, surrounded by loved ones.
