The Message Inside This Bottle Will Break Your Heart
1 of 10
Reddit user Lijyg recently documented how he found this 11 day old message in a bottle.
Upon coming across the bottle, he became curious about the contents and opened it up.
It took some effort...
But he was ultimately able to take out the recently written letter.
He is what was inside...
A husband and father of 3 died at age 53. He loved the ocean, so his family lay him to rest there. "So this starts my journey."
"If you find this message, please go to my Facebook page, post a pic of yourself and where you found me and..."
"...send me back on my journey." The group of course did as instructed and sealed the bottle back up.
This was a truly touching tribute by a loving family. Farewell Melvin.
