He finally made her smile

We only know him as police deputy Froelich. During hurricane Irma, he was stationed at a shelter in Florida to watch dozens of families seeking refuge from the storm. But one of the evacuees caught his attention. She was a frightened-looking elderly woman sitting alone in a corner.

Deputy Froelich went over to her and asked if there was anything he could do to cheer her up.  All she said in reply was, "a dance." So Froelich took her hand and danced with her as he sang "Beyond the Sea" by Bobby Darin. After dancing with him a few minutes, the frightened woman began to smile and was herself again.
