Bringing a ray of sunshine

This message from Karen:

“Dad was at a real low point after his diagnosis, and came to Dorothy House for respite care, having not shown us a smile in weeks. As kids, he’d always been such fun, skipping along with Eric and Ernie whenever Morecambe and Wise were on TV. But now, nothing we did seemed to cheer him up.

Well, what a difference when we came to visit him a few days later. He was laughing and chatting to one of the Nurse Specialists, and what should be on the CD player but, ‘Bring Me Sunshine’. As if by magic, Dad was himself again. What a wonderful moment, to have found something to unlock his smile once more.”
