What a wonderful story. Your grandad sounds like such an amazing man. You’re lucky to have had him in your life. Do you play that piano much?

My grandmother died several years back. She was a wonderful woman. When she was little she was quarantined for months in her room. Her mother gave her an accordion. She played it often in my childhood. When she died, I inherited it. I don’t play it that often. I should. When I do, it’s overwhelmingly emotional. It still smells like her.

Again, what a beautiful story. Thanks for sharing.
