“He shared stories about him ‘getting his wings’, being a pilot, the war and sadly the loss of his beloved wife on Christmas Eve a few years ago.

“I noticed he had a piano with music open - one of his favourite Chopin pieces he said, a nocturne.

“I told him it was my late grandma’s favourite too!

“I said I could play, so he invited me to play for him, which I did. It made his day, as you can see in the video you can see how much he appreciated it. Job satisfaction.”
