An equally heartbreaking and heartwarming story has been shared online. A person was down at the lake when they noticed a note stuck to the gate with a single rose attached.
"This note was left on the gate at the water this afternoon." the finder of the note wrote on Twitter.
"No name or number left but whoever you are, rest assured your rose is in place in the middle of the lake."
The note reads... "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 the gates are locked... Have to drive up north tonight. Thank you x."
Thankfully the kind stranger did as the note asked and dropped the rose into the lake.
People online were quick to show their love of the heartwarming story.
"Faith in humanity - restored" wrote one person.
"I hope that this woman knows that her message went viral, and is being appreciated... Love, condolences, and many thanks to the people who shared this bit of humanity. We are better people for sharing this." added another
