Special moment at Inn at Garden Plaza

There have been a number of special moments along the way, and yesterday was no exception!  At one point, while my son Ben was playing “The Godfather,” an elderly man who was sitting up front got up and walked out hurriedly.  I assumed he needed the restroom, but when he returned he had a stack of pictures, small books, and papers under his arm.  He didn’t speak English well, but tried to tell me (quite loudly, during the recital!) 🙂 about those papers.  They were his documents and memorabilia from his days serving the Italian Air Force during WWII.  Hearing “The Godfather” had triggered something in him….after the recital, Ben sat down with him and the man was so happy to show off his treasures.  And Ben was so happy his music had touched someone so deeply!
