Maria, 88 years

Shirley (Maria's Daughter): "Mum and her partner used to dance - Waltz, Fox Trot, you name it - and they were always noticed."

Maria: "I love music you know. I loved the German music, because we lived close to the border." 

Shirley: "Around the time when Mum was very crook and was having seizures, she wouldn’t talk to us, she seemed very vague. She didn’t even look at us. My daughter played her ‘Tulips from Amsterdam’ on her phone. And she had her eyes shut but she made a movement and the next morning I walked in and she yelled out “Shirley Shirley” – and it was as though the music brought her back."
