Widow Leaves Behind a Rose and Note for a Rowing Coach. Here’s How He Honored Her Request.

Wonderful.

Published

on

On Thursday of last week, Ian Bousfield, the rowing coach for Bishop Vesey’s Grammar School Rowing Club discovered something unusual and quite unexpected as he arrived for practice at Powell’s Pool located in Birmingham, England.

It was a rose and a note stuck to a chain link fence. The note contained the heartbreaking request of a widow who desperately desired to do something special for her deceased husband, but ran into a bit of a problem.

How this rowing coach responded is just wonderful.

The note read: “Please, can someone throw this into the lake for me? My late-husband’s ashes are in the lake and I can’t get to the lakeside in my wheelchair anymore [and] gates are locked. Have to drive back up north tonight. Thank you.”

Accompanying the note was a full red rose.

The man who found the note, Bishop Vesey’s geography teacher and head of rowing, Ian Bousfield, told The Daily Wire that the note was “wedged into the handle” of the “metal gate that leads to our boathouse.”

Bousfield says he was touched by the request: “It was very heart wrenching when I saw it initially, and I was more than happy to fulfill the person’s wishes.”

“I’m very grateful for everyone’s kind comments on twitter,” he said, adding, “It’s very uplifting, and I have read them all.”

Here are some of the Twitter responses the picture and tweet have received:

The tweet has now received over 153,000 likes and has been retweeted more than 43,000 times with 1,300 replies. While the person has yet to be identified, there’s little doubt that whoever she is, she’s probably well aware of the kindness of this stranger who went out of his way to help her honor her husband’s memory.

Resistance Agitators Deface Trump Hollywood Star with Profane Putin Parable

The “resistance” is but a symptom of our sick society, and we are running out of time to turn it around.

The “resistance” to President Trump is nothing more than a symptom of a sick society, and none of us are completely innocent. We’ve fallen victim to the mainstream media’s “infotainment” whims for so long that we no longer resemble the nation were were built to be.  Instead of free thinkers, focusing on liberty and pursuit of happiness, we’ve shuffled ourselves into tiny little boxes marked “red” and “blue”, or “democrat” and “republican”. And I get it, it’s exhilarating to argue on the internet with one another and gain those bits of validation from our peers, but we are producing a much larger problem than the hurt feelings on Facebook.  We are falling victim to the sensationalism of the mainstream publishers because, now, thanks to social media, we are all publishers. It is this false dichotomy that created the “resistance” to President Trump, and it’s the “resistance” who are dragging our national state of mind back into the early 1860’s, as evidenced by the latest defacing of President Trump’s Hollywood Walk of Fame Star. We must warn you, the language ahead is profane. President Trump’s Walk of Fame star got a fresh coat of paint, but he ain’t gonna be thrilled about it … because it was spray paint and it spelled out … “Putin’s Bitch.” Trump’s star was attacked again early Wednesday morning, and TMZ has the footage of the vandals in the act. Around 3:40 AM … one guy — who appears to have blonde hair — sprayed a coat of black paint over the star. Then, in white paint, he added his coup de grace. There was another man with the vandal … shooting photos and/or video. The graffiti is alluding to a widely held conspiracy theory among opponents of the President that the Oval Office has somehow been compromised…

President Trump Contradicts Mueller Report on Key Democratic Concern

The President is claiming that Don McGhan’s sworn testimony in the Mueller report is a lie.

The fight over the public perception of the Mueller report has been raging in Washington and on television for the last several days, and there looks to be no end in sight. The media is doing their thing, whatever that thing seems to be.  They are dividing the nation up into easily definable segments as a way to pit us against each other, because an angry America makes for great ratings. Politicians are certainly doing their part as well, with democratic lawmakers insisting on a nonstop issuance of subpoenas to those involved in the report’s manufacture, as well as some legal requests from way outside the realm of RussiaGate. Amid all this, the President is standing firm in his insistence that there was “no collusion, no obstruction”, even going so far today as to cast doubts on the authenticity of the testimony of his own aides. President Donald Trump denied Thursday he ordered White House Counsel Don McGahn to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller. “As has been incorrectly reported by the Fake News Media, I never told then-White House Counsel Don McGahn to fire Robert Mueller, even though I had the legal right to do so,” the president wrote on Twitter. “If I wanted to fire Mueller, I didn’t need McGahn to do it, I could have done it myself.” Trump noted that ultimately Mueller was not fired and was allowed to complete his investigation, even though there was no crime to investigate. Robert Mueller’s report on Russian interference on the 2016 election contained sworn testimony from McGhan to the contrary, and this is one of the key points of the democratic party’s renewed interest in the possibility of charging the President with obstruction of justice.
