Man aged 92 sings love song to his dying wife in heartbreaking footage. The emotional moment was captured on camera by the couple’s granddaughter before going viral with more than 3.4 million views.

This is the heartbreaking moment a 92-year-old man sings a love song to his dying wife as she lies in a hospital bed.

Erin Solari, the couple’s granddaughter, captured the moment her grandfather Howard serenaded his wife Laura, 93, singing Rosemary Clooney’s version of You’ll Never Know.

Lying in the bed, and clearly weak, Laura tells her husband how much she loves him, and that he must ‘behave’.

The music then starts up before Laura attempts to whisper the words to Howard.

When he realises what she is doing, he takes over and sings the rest of the song, looking deep into her eyes.

In the background, family members are heard sobbing as the couple share some of Laura’s last moments together. Erin, who has since shared the video online, wrote in a Facebook comment: “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.

“Sadly, Grandma is now too weak to sing, but that doesn’t stop her from saying the words to him (see at 1:00 ). “Howard then takes over for her and sings the rest of the song to her while stroking her face.”

She also explained that Laura had been well enough to go home after the video was taken, and is spending her final days resting at home.

The emotional footage was uploaded to Facebook on September 12 and has since clocked up more than 3.4 million views.
