D-Day veteran who takes picture of late wife to bed given cushion with her face on it | ITV News

After losing his wife last year, 94-year-old Ken Benbow would often take a photo of his late wife Ada, to bed with him at a care home in Preston, Lancashire.

The former Royal Navy serviceman, who lives at Thistleton Lodge nursing home, has had a picture of her with him since she died nine months ago.

Realising this, Ken’s care worker Kia Tobin decided to surprise him with a cushion with his late wife’s face printed on it.

A heartwarming video of Ken’s reaction to the gift was posted online, and the clip went viral.
