According to George, one man, called Teddy, was unable to speak, but it didn’t stop Smiley from trying to communicate with him. Shetold the broadcaster: “One day, Smiley put his feet up in front of [Teddy] and he started smiling and making noise. All of the nurses rushed into the room and said they’ve never seen him smile — never seen any kind of reaction.” She said that Teddy is now the first person he sees whenever he visits the home.

And Smiley was even a ring-bearer at George’s wedding.
