Laura and Howard have been married for 73 years. Howard is now 92 and Laura, 93.
This moving video shows the moment that Laura and Howard request their favourite song, You’ll Never Know This by Rosemary Clooney. The song holds special meaning for them both, as it was the song that comforted Laura when Howard was fighting in World War II and according to their granddaughter, Erin, this was the song they would sing to each other at family gatherings.
Howard, who cannot stand unaided, rose from his wheelchair when Laura asked him to hold her.
As of yesterday, Erin reported that her grandmother, Laura, has been able to return home to see out her final days.
