Geoff and Cyril were neighbours. Geoff completed National Service after the war. As a POW Cyril took part in the infamous ‘Death March’ across Europe. Nothing phased Cyril.
When Cyril’s wife died, Geoff comforted and looked out for him. Cyril recovered.
When Geoff’s wife died he was inconsolable; dementia soon followed. Cyril looked out for Geoff and kept him safe.
Geoff moved to a care home and as Cyril’s health deteriorated Jenny moved into Geoff’s old home. Jenny looked out for Cyril; she smartened him up, prettied his home, gave him hot food and became his friend.
Cherish your neighbour.
