COMALite J: The couple actually sang that pretty darn well, considering the circumstances! Maybe not quite as good as this pair, but still pretty darn good (and they did two whole verses, not just the ending).That song is the State Song of Louisiana, because it was written, composed, and performed by the famous Singin' Governor of Louisiana, Jimmy Davis (who passed away only a few years ago). Davis was actually one of the better governors that Louisiana ever had.Ironic indeed that it would be used in such a touching way with an elderly couple that had been presumably faithful to each other for ²/3 century, since the actual lyrics are actually about a man whose "only sunshine" had left him for another. But he still loved her.In some ways, it kinda foreshadowed one of the most tear-jerking songs I've ever heard that doesn't involve anyone dying: "Diary" by Bread.
puckheaven: I sure hope my wife and I can make it that long, what an incredibly sad, but touching moment.Yes its Fark and there will plenty of snark, but I can only imagine what either one must be going through after spending a lifetime together. Good for them.My grandparents were married for over 60 years and when my grandfather died, my grandmother (who was in hospice care at the time) died 2 days later.
