While a woman was on vacation at the beach, something unexpected happened as she walked along the shoreline as the sun sank.
Judy, who is from Florida, came across a plastic bottle with a handwritten note, two 2 dollar bills, and a phone. She was sh0cked and perplexed about who the objects belonged to and where they came from.
A handwritten inscription in the bottle provided Judy no indication of their origin or intent.
One day while Judy and her companion were walking down the beach, they came across a plastic container washed up on the coast by the waves. They discovered two dollar bills, a cell phone, and what appeared to be coarse sand inside.
They realized the actual nature of their discovery after reading the message borne in with the tide – human ashes. The woman disclosed in tears that these were the remains of a seventy-year-old man who had died.
The late old man’s suffering wife had arranged for his bones to be put in this container to honor him.
Her story moved everyone on the beach, and they silently paid their respects to him.
The note that was discovered in the bottle had a heartfelt message about an old man named Gordon. His wife wanted to pay tribute to his memories and passion for travel by placing her ashes in a bottle and releasing it into the sea.
When the bottle was recovered, it had a phone number, presumably so that someone might contact Gordon’s widow and learn where he had ended up.
She gladly agreed to the woman’s request to reopen it and, as a thank, you, put in an extra dollar for anyone who might have found it. She tossed the bottle back into the sea, closing this fantastic event.
