Rosemary McGowan

"Mummy there's a man outside who wants to talk to you"

The Story

Rosemary was due to move house next month and she was busily preoccupied with the many chores that have to be done prior to house-moving. Her son Matthew, who'd been playing outside, came in and said "Mummy there's a man outside who wants to talk to you".

It turned out to be a very special visitor indeed. This was a day Rosemary would remember.

Comment: Just shows that it is a small world after all. A house isn't just a home, its a place full of memories.
