she phoned me asking what should be done with it.
I phoned my younger daughter in Hertfordshire asking if she would like it, I hated the idea of it moving out of the family. She said yes she would love to have it, and arrangements were made for it to be transported nearly 400 miles to her house.
Father died shortly after this, happy at least that the piano had found a good home and was still with the family.
With a small legacy left to her by my father, she had the piano completely overhauled, refinished and tuned and it now stood proudly once more in all itís elegance in her home.
Soon, Becky, her daughter was taking lessons, then Grace the youngest as well. The talent of my mother and father had obviously surfaced two generations later, both the great-grandchildren had outstanding ability. Judge for yourselves, listen to them play.
My one regret was that father was not there to here them as you can, I know the sound of the family piano being played with great feeling and talent by his great-granddaughters would have brought tears to his eyes......
