Stu­art’s tale told on air

Lennox Herald - - NEWS -

Dum­bar­ton grand­fa­ther Stu­art McWil­liam, who hands out red roses to women in mem­ory of his wife, ap­peared on na­tional ra­dio last week.

The 80-year-old from West Brid­gend was de­lighted to be asked to go on BBC Ra­dio Scot­land’s‘Morn­ing Call’ pro­gramme with Kaye Adams onTues­day.

Last month we re­vealed how Stu­art gives out the flow­ers to women he meets in Dum­bar­ton to hon­our his wife Marion, who died in late 2015 af­ter hav­ing vas­cu­lar de­men­tia for 10 years.

And Kaye said she was “very hon­oured”to re­ceive one of the roses when he vis­ited the Glas­gow stu­dios last week.

On the show Stu­art spoke about his “won­der­ful”57 years of mar­riage and also Marion’s bat­tle with the de­gen­er­a­tive con­di­tion.

And he stressed how much joy he gets from giv­ing out roses, adding: “It’s won­der­ful giv­ing out a sin­gle red rose.The re­ac­tion is fan­tas­tic.”

Since we re­vealed Stu­art’s heart­felt story in Jan­uary it has been shared world­wide and he is now re­flect­ing on his new-found celebrity sta­tus.

Speak­ing to the Len­nox Her­ald af­ter his ap­pear­ance on the show, Stu­art, who is also a keen poet, said:“It worked out well.

“I am en­joy­ing my time in the lime­light.”
