Henry and Bill,
Do husbands really do that kind of romantic thing for their wives?
Bill, try to "think like a woman" here. If my husband did sang our favorite
song for me everyday, while looking into my eyes with love and appreciation,
here's how I'd feel:

The first instance of hearing the first note, I'd automatically and
hypnotically slip into that blissful state I first fell into during the
first time my sweetie ever sang it to me in what was no doubt an utterly
romantic moment. A Pavlovian response. High praise from me to all couples
who have established their own unique little trigger for that most desirable
response: bliss. May her dear husband rest in peace. I grieve for her.

Love and hugs,
