Security Officer Serenades Cancer Patient To Brighten Her Day

A singing hospital security officer left an elderly patient in floods of happy tears as he serenaded her with a Nat King Cole classic to brighten her day. Esther Lindell, 87, was visiting the Baptist Medical Center in Jacksonville, Florida, to get the all-clear from a cancer scan on March 12 – but she had no idea what was about to come next. As Esther and her daughter Cindy Hamilton, 63, were leaving the facility, security officer Lorenzo “Fig” Newton, 60, approached them to say that they were heading into an area that was for employees only. Cindy informed Fig that she had been working with the center’s communication department since March 2020 due to COVID, and so Fig decided to approach Esther and simply began to sing. His song of choice was “L-O-V-E” by Nat King Cole, which he sang along to and clicked his fingers as Cindy recorded on her cellphone. According to Cindy, the gesture made her mother’s day, as she cried the entire way home.
