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.

Prominent College Republican Victim of Dorm Room Arson at Tulane

If the alt-left can’t find their civility soon, our nation could face perils unlike anything we’ve ever experienced before.

While the release of the Mueller report has been seen by some as the first step to the healing of our nation, the radical left seems unwilling to move toward peace.  Not only are democrats such as Adam Schiff insisting on issuing subpoenas to Robert Mueller and Attorney General Bill Barr in order to do some “dirt farming”, but the alt-left’s rhetoric is growing ever more intense by the minute. In a disturbing reminder of the times that we live in, a young and prominent republican student at Tulane University was just recently the victim of a late night arson attempt at his dorm room. Three individuals have been arrested for aggravated arson after allegedly setting a dorm room door on fire during the late hours of Friday night at Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana. Although the motive behind the arson still remains unclear, one of the students living in the targeted dorm room is the president of Tulane’s Turning Point USA chapter, and had recently been “doxed” by leftists seeking to “expose” members of TPUSA and Young American for Liberty (YAL). Tulane University campus police have arrested three individuals — Robert Money, David Shelton, and Naima Okami — on suspicion of aggravated arson for setting fire to a dorm room door on Friday night at Tulane University. One of the two students who lives in the dorm room is a conservative and chapter president for Turning Point USA, who had recently been “doxed” by leftists targeting members of another campus organization he belongs to, YAL. Doxxing has been a part of the liberal playbook for some time, and is a truly heinous act. The term “dox” refers to the disclosure of personal, private information — such as a phone number or home address — belonging to a specific…

Democrats Already Turning to NEW ‘Russia’ Conspiracy

You knew they would have something up their sleeves.

Robert Mueller

With the end of Mueller’s so-called “Russia” investigation turning up nothing and leading to no serious crimes or indictments, the Democrats who have daily pushed the “Russia collusion” lie are already pivoting to a new conspiracy maintaining that Mueller is meaningless or is even part of the cover up! For over two years, now, the Democrats have told us that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is an “honorable” man who is above reproach. But now that it looks like he is not indicting the president, his sons, or anyone in Trump’s inner circle, the Democrats are starting to throw their “honorable man” under the bus and blaming him for being part of a wide-ranging “conspiracy.” After taking several days off Twitter, President Trump jumped back on the social media platform Sunday to show that he is in fine spirits and tweeting that it is a “great day.” https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1109787378242240514 But the joyous attitude is not shared by the dour Democrats whose Mueller god has failed them. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D, NY), for instance, is now saying that Mueller’s investigation doesn’t mean a thing. Despite telling us all for two years that Mueller’s investigation was the key to Trump’s downfall, Nadler is now saying the investigation doesn’t mean anything because despite Mueller’s finding of no collusion, “We know there was collusion.” Nadler is sort of like Chicken Little crying the sky is falling despite the proof all around him that it isn’t. Democratic California Rep. Adam Schiff, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, also jumped in on Sunday to insist that the evidence doesn’t matter because “we just know” things. Schiff claimed he trusted Mueller, but that his investigation is essentially meaningless. Schiff also claimed that Mueller hamstrung himself by not interviewing the president.  But there is a more…
