Watching James Pinegar Sing the Jimmie Davis Song ‘You Are My Sunshine’ to His Wife from Hospital Bed Will Make You Cry
James Pinegar is an 86-year-old man from Utah who was in the hospital being treated for a blood infection. He and his wife, Colleen, have been married for 66 years. Thinking that he was on his deathbed, James found a heartwarming way to tell her how much he loved her: by singing “You Are My Sunshine.”
