Tumblr just published its 2013 Year In Review in which it showcased the best new blogs, art, videos, GIFs and other assorted items posted this year.
We’ve sifted through a lot of posts and found the following three viral items that deserve another look.

A wonderful love story. 96-year-old Fred was married to his wife for 72 years. She passed away one month before Fred saw a songwriting contest advertised in the newspaper by Green Shoe Studio. He couldn’t write music, so he wrote the lyrics to a song about her and mailed it in. The studio read Fred’s letter and lyrics, wrote the music and recorded it for Fred. [Skip to 5:54 if you just want to hear the song. Grab tissues.]
