The boys at Bishop Vesey’s Grammar School Rowing Club in England found the note attached to a gate to the lake they were going to practice at. It was such an odd place for a note that they had to read it… What was on it nearly broke their hearts:
“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 x.”
Naturally, they answered this woman’s wishes and documented it for social media. Their wish is to find her to let her know that the rose made it to her late husband!
Not only did this warm people’s hearts everywhere, but it also sparked the conversation for accessible communities. Some people were heartbroken to read that she couldn’t get to the lake in her wheelchair. Thanks to this woman, more people have been made aware of the hardships disabled persons face to do simple tasks.
There are so many reasons that actually accessible communities are important https://t.co/GXxxWVpKEk

Hopefully, this has made it to her! She should know that her husband got the note and that it has touched the hearts of thousands.
