Hi lads,Geordie Sam here,
as part of my fitness regime I walk about 5 miles a day,this morning (very early, 6am) I was walking along the river "Tyne" when I came across a rather muted bouquet of flowers that had been fastened to one of the many bridges that cross the river,I decided as there was nobody about to read the card that was also left with the flowers.
The flowers had been left for somebody called "Jason",the card went on to say "what a lovely person" this Jason had been,and that he had shown his friends how to accept people with different views to theirs,and how missed he would be.
And as I walked on I thought what a great legacy this Jason had left behind him,so I thought that I would help him "celebrate" what life he may or may not have had by giving him a mention here.
Thanks Jason,I never knew you,I never met you, but I'm sure I would have liked you.

Geordie Sam.

What a great thing to do Sam, sharing this with us. I'm sure Jason made a huge impression and impact in whoever offered the flowers. That alone is awesome. Better yet when someone like yourself take the time to share it. Life is about the small things that can make a difference.
Thanks for sharing and may Jason be well wherever he is now.

Its certainly an advantage to have wonderful parents Geordie. But some of the credit has to be given to you for at least following their role model.

Well Done. And few are being brought up the right way.

Remember ... Random Acts of Kindness can change the world.

Or at least small parts of it.

Thanks for sharing that. I am often amazed how the our lives can be changes by things we would never expect, if we just give it a chance.

First yours and now ours.
