The dress was left at St Gemma's Hospice charity shop in Leeds last week with a love note. The 85-year-old man whose wife it had belong to later came forward after his 'true gent' gesture received global acclaim.

I wish any lady who takes this dress to have a life with her loved one 56 years like I did. Happy years. I was a lucky man to marry a lady like mine.
