87-Yr-Old Stroke Patient Relearns Wife’s Favorite Song Just In Time For Anniversary.

For 62 years, Joe Korst has celebrated his wedding anniversary by singing his wife Sharon’s favorite song. Sadly, the 87-year-old suffered two debilitating strokes this past year, leaving him unable to remember a single word of Kenny Rogers’ “All That You Can Be.”

Undeterred, the doting husband worked extra hard at therapy in the months leading up to their 63rd anniversary. He was determined to relearn every line and forced his brain to cooperate so he could show his bride just how much she means to him!

His perseverance is proof that we can do anything when we have something worth fighting for! Watch the sweet duet in the video below, and don’t forget to share this story to make someone smile.
