The man stopped at the flower shop to order some flowers
to be wired to his mother who lived 200 miles away
As he got out of his car he noticed a girl sitting on the curb sobbing.
He asked her what was wrong and she replied,
"Iwanted to buy a red rose for my mother,
but I only have 75 cents and a rose costs $2.00.
The man smiled and said,
"Come on in with me. I will buy you a rose for your mother."
He placed his FTD order of flowers to his mother
and bought a rose for the girl.
As they were leaving he offered the girl a ride.
She responded,
"Yes, please, if you could. Take me to my mother,"
and she directed him to a cemetery
where she placed the rose on a freshly dug grave.
The man returned to the flower shop,
canceled the wire order,
picked up the flowers and drove the 200 miles
to his mother's home.
