This is a true fairytale ending

We all hope that one day we’ll have that special someone to grow old with. For Howard Solari, the chance to grow old with his wife Laura was the highlight of his life. In a heartwarming (and, at the same time, heart-wrenching) video, we can see Howard singing an old love song to Laura as she rests on a hospital bed, clearly not far from death.

Erin Solari, the couple’s granddaughter, caught the moment on video, and the footage has since gone viral on Facebook and YouTube. “Laura (Grandma) is at a hospice facility making peace with her final days,” Solari said in a caption on the video. “I was lucky enough to capture this precious, heart-melting moment between the two of them. Howard (Grandpa) is singing to her their love song, the song that comforted her when he went away to fight in World War II.”

The couple has been married for 73 years, and although Laura is very weak and nearly blind, her excitement when her husband enters the room is tangible. “Moments before this video began, when Grandma heard that Grandpa was in the room, she asked if she could hold him. 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 wrote.
