She sat in the arm chair as the pain inside her head got steadily worse she never saw the dawn break as blackness overcame her and finally her heart stopped beating.


When Albert pulled up outside he helped Buzz out with his cases. Tim came to the front door and greeted his father then Conchetta hugged her father in law. The three boys then came out. Finally in the small doorway Laura emerged. Buzz gasped as he looked upon her face. He was taken back to Driffield all those years ago when a beautiful girl had captured his heart. Laura was the image of her mother. He walked towards Laura and her him, he was unsure what to do but Laura threw her arms around him and gave him a kiss on the cheek.

“Thank you he said you have made an old man very happy indeed.’

“Come in you must be exhausted after your long flight.’  Buzz followed Laura into the house

And Albert closed the door behind him; somehow he knew that everything was going to be alright from now on.








The funeral of Elizabeth Kinnear was a sombre one, many friends attended and she was buried according to her wishes. Buzz dropped a single red rose into the grave then uttered “until we meet again my love.’

The wake was held in the New York social club where Laura’s father was a committee man.

Both Tim and his Family and Buzz spoke highly of Elizabeth Kinnear. They stayed in England for nearly a week.

It was on the morning when Tim and his family and Buzz were being driven to the airport that Bobby gave Buzz the suitcase with all of his letters that his gran had kept. But what was unusual was Laura was looking to give Buzz the gift that she had bought for him when she saw the small brown box among some other things belonging to her mother. She went down stairs and asked Bobby if he still had the set of keys. He reached into his pocket and pulled them out and gave her them; she ran back upstairs and tried the lock. It would not open then she tried the other and turned the key in the lock and there amongst her jewellery in a separate little drawer was a letter addressed to Buzz Beurling.

It was in her mother’s hand writing; she thought about opening it but folded it and placed it into her handbag.

She held onto her bag then got into the car and they all drove to the airport. She waited until they had all checked in and said their goodbyes.’
