This episode of In My Day introduces us to Steve Asmuth and his timeless romance with his wife. Steve began playing the violin in 5th grade, but eventually laid it aside upon entering college. While there, he fell in love with his future wife. Despite no longer playing the violin, they still connected over a shared love of music.

“We actually started singing duets together,” he recalls with a smile.

In this touching video, Steve recalls the joys of sharing a long life together with his wife, but also the pain of watching her develop Alzheimer’s disease.

“There’s a lot of sadness as you go along through this journey, with the memory in decline the whole time. So, I didn’t play my violin for 60 years, and finally, I thought ‘I know the fingering for the music that I hear.’ Just learning it would give me the opportunity to do something that my wife enjoys, she always enjoyed music. And it did bring back some memories for her.”

This video pays loving tribute to the power of music, and the beauty of a timeless romance, even in the face of deep grief. Although Steve’s wife has left this earth, he finds comfort knowing that she’s now in heaven.

“I still get kind of choked up because it was so pertinent; the idea that she sang all of her life and now at the end, she’s still singing and she’ll be singing forevermore in heaven. I love it.”
