A long time ago there lived a couple whose names were Rosemary and John. They were destined for each other. A moment never passed by without their unfailing love showing for one and other. They resided in a small town in the valley’s of Tennessee. One quiet April morning, early enough that the dew was still clinging onto the blades of grass, a horrific moment occurred.
“John, John help! I cannot breathe”, gasped Rosemary.
John rushed to her aid, but before he arrived, she had stopped breathing, and passed away. John’s heart was shattered, and he was overcome with disbelief.
