96 Year-Old Man writes love song for deceased wife

Have you ever loved and missed someone so much, that you wrote them a beautiful love song? Well, Fred Stobaugh wrote his recently deceased wife Lorraine, a beautiful  love song in rememberance of their love. Their love story is  one that spans 75 years long,  it is one that's sure to make you cry in a sad but happy way! Jacob Colgan, of  Green Shoes Studios was running a singer/songwriter contest when he happened to receive a large yellow envelope from Fred Stobaugh who is, neither a singer or a songwriter; but merely a man who loved and missed his beloved  wife, Lorraine so deeply that after she passed away, he wrote a song about her and their wonderful years spent together.

For starters he stated in his entry that he was not a singer or a songwriter and delivered his  lyrics in a large yellow envelope.  Memories now attached with lyrics th

We've been clamoring for all of the must have items for our children and it is so important that they get the right school supplies and accessories needed for learning. Back to school time  is a time for reflection, over-scheduling and dare I say it? H-o-m-e-w-o-r-k  that is our children's least favorite word, but teaching them the importance of learning is essential. For instance if you have a first grader like me taking your child to the store with you for Back-to-School  shopping can be a learning experience about budgeting and only getting the items that we really need versus the things we really want!
