Erin Solari took to YouTube and Facebook to share a video of her 92-year-old grandfather comforting his dying wife on her hospice bed, but not only that—he serenades his 93-year-old wife with "You'll Never Know," an oldie that has a very special meaning for the couple.
"This was the song my grandmother would sing when my grandfather went away to fight in World War II. It has been their love song ever since," Solari explains in the caption of the video.
"She is 93, he is 92, and they have been married for 73 years! Now he is the one singing to her as she prepares to go away."
Solari continued, "Moments before this video began, when Grandma heard that Grandpa was in the room, she asked if she could hold him."
Viewers can see the two gazing into each other's eyes and saying, "I love you," before breaking into song.
"Grandpa cannot stand on his own, but he immediately pulled his wheelchair close to her bed ready to make it happen. My cousin, Serena, who is a physical therapist, helped him to his feet and held him up throughout the entire song."
She mentions that it "was not uncommon for the two of them to sing this song together, each taking a verse and serenading the other...In fact, after fifty years of marriage, they renewed their vows and performed this song as a duet for the entire family at the reception."
You have to see this beautiful moment unfold, even though your tears will make it extremely difficult.
