Goodbye Song

When you love someone, you try your best not to think about a day when they won't be around anymore. Instead, you spend your days focussing on each other, savoring every moment you get to spend with the person who understands you most. In their 73 years of marriage, Laura and Howard chose to savor every one of those moments, even when they found out Laura required hospice care.

The song Howard sings to his wife is the same song she used to sing while waiting for him to return from World War II. All 73 years of their love can be heard in his sincere rendition of their favorite song. He strokes her neck, the lyrics second-nature, and they're both transported back to a time far away from that hospice room, when they were just two kids with their entire lives ahead of them, lives filled with moments they couldn't wait to savor together.
