Jon Rosen, the Snyder gentleman who owns Jon Rosen Systems, went over to a neighbor's house to help them get ready for a move. In a crawl space in the basement they found this written on the wall:
This being the Internet age, the story does not end there. Jon put the picture up on Facebook. And the house's former owner, now living in Texas, immediately got in touch!
"I can't believe you found my note!!!" Holly Kirkpatrick Whiting wrote from Dallas. "I wrote it when we moved my mother to Asbury Pointe around seven years ago. I couldn't bear to walk out and not leave some note about who had built the house. Thanks so much for sharing!"
It turns out that her sister was Facebook friends with Jon's sister.
The house's adventures continue. Buzz hears that it has just been sold to Liesl Folks, the new dean of the UB School of Engineering.
Engineers have an eye for interesting buildings!
