This story is such an inspiring example of lasting love.

A 96-year-old Illinois man wrote a song about his wife of 75 years and when he sent the heart-wrenching ode into a singer-songwriter contest, they decided to produce it for him.

When Fred Stobaugh talks about his wife Lorraine now, it’s hard for him to hold back tears after the life they led together he says was ‘like a dream.’

After she died, he was sitting alone in the Peoria home they once shared and for the first time in his life he decided to write a song.

His wife died recently. About his marriage he said, “That was a wonderful 75 years. I just often think it was kinda unreal. Dreaming or something. But it was real.”
