Erin Solari’s grandparents, Howard and Laura, have been married for 73 years.

Solari captured a sweet moment between her grandparents while by Laura’s side at a hospice care center recently. In the clip, Howard sings Laura their favorite song, "You Never Know," as performed by Rosemary Clooney and Harry James. In the video’s description, Solari writes that the song comforted Laura when her husband was away during World War II.

"At family gatherings, it was not uncommon for the two of them to sing this song together, each taking a verse and serenading the other," she wrote. "In fact, after 50 years of marriage, they renewed their vows and performed this song as a duet for the entire family at the reception. Sadly, Grandma is now too weak to sing, but that doesn’t stop her from saying the words to him."

In the time since Solari took this video, Laura, 93, has since left the hospice center and is back home.
