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, its 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.

'OH SWEET LORRAINE' BY FRED STOBAUGH
Oh Sweet Lorraine I wish we could do The good times All over again
Oh sweet Lorraine Life only goes around Once But never again
Oh sweet Lorraine I wish we could do All the good times all over Again
My memories will always Linger on Oh sweet Lorraine
The memories will Always linger on
God blessed him. 1. He had found true love. 2. He knew he had true love.
What a tribute to Lorraine and what a tribute to love.
I must say, your post broke the mood.
Your tag-line describes you perfectly! Lol
LOL. I did not expect to see that...
What an absolutely classless remark as I sit here with tears running down my chees. I lost my dear wife of 48 years just a few months ago.
You owe an apology to all FReeper widowers who loved their mates.
Condolences on the loss of your dear wife.
This would be so much more fitting on an obama, holder, al sharpton, or jesse hackson thread. They stole a dream and turned it into a nightmare of gigantic proportions.
The world is saturated with misery and strife, so it is uplifting to find such a nice sentimental article and thread. You have totally ruined it. There’s a time and place for black humor, but this isn’t it. Please THINK before posting next time.
I’m so sorry about your wife. God bless.
96 tears old and he still loves his wife. There is a much deeper message in there. Love is worth waiting for and there is a mahor difference between real love and what passes for love these days. This is beautiful and so sad all at the same time. Any one of us should be so lucky.
Salamander said something about her husband on a thread the other day that struck me the same way this did. It is what it is.
G-d bless you. I am so sorry.
My post #19 was directed at a post by Jeff Chandler that has been deleted. Thanks, moderator.
The obituary of Lorraine Stobaugh.
He made this “old man” cry.
Very touching. They will be together in happiness again for eternity.
Thanks, DFG for posting such a sweet/sad story. It’s a shame your thread was so thoughtlessly defiled. And thanks to you who expressed condolences for my loss.
Blessings to you,
