Valentine’s Surprise


For Valentine’s Day, I was invited to play at the Eikelenburg Crematorium. The staff there have made a habit out of hosting events during the more memory-laden days, such as Christmas, Valentines, Father’s Day and Mother’s day, to provide support for those who have lost the people who they would otherwise celebrate it with.


I always enjoy playing at these events; the concerts usually get very emotional, but in a very healthy way, and I think it’s great to be able to support people in this way.


But this Valentine’s day, I got a surprise of my own.


One of the ladies who had been listening to me during the evening suddenly disappeared, and then came back carrying a beautifully wrapped present. You can imagine my puzzlement when she gave it to me.


As it turns out, this lady goes around carrying a gift of Merci chocolates so she has something to give to someone to show her gratitude.


That has to be the kindest idea ever.
