Man’s Message In A Bottle Was Found 5 Years After His Death

I love hearing unique stories about what a family does to create memories. Some of them are a little bizarre and not entirely normal, but people can be very creative. That is why when I heard about this story I knew I had to share it. This one is very unique and will make you feel some sort of way that’s for sure.

A group was fishing in California when they found this bottle.

It was rolled up nicely and laminated.

And this is what they found. It read:

My name is Mel. I have 3 beautiful kids and a beautiful wife of almost 54 years when I passed. I love the ocean, deep sea fishing, abalone hunting with my 2 sons and visiting the tide pools with the whole family. Today my family is laying me to rest in a place that I love… the ocean. So, this starts my journey… if you find this message in a bottle, please go to my Facebook page, post a pic of yourself and where you found me and send me back on my journey.

Thanks and God bless – Mel’s Family
