96-year-old Fred Stobaugh pays tribute to his late wife of 75 years with “Oh Sweet Lorraine.” When he submitted the tune into Green Shoe Studio’s singer-songwriter competition the studio took the lyrics and turned them into a professional song.

Try your best not to cry.

The song is also available on iTunes.
