Heartbreaking Note Found At Mayan Temple Goes Viral (Photos)


A Reddit user reportedly found a heartbreaking letter from a grieving woman inside of a bottle at an ancient Mayan temple.

The Redditor discovered the message in a bottle while vacationing in Mexico, in the ancient Mayan ruins of Uxmal in Yucatan, the Daily Mail reports.

The heartbreaking note, which quickly went viral after being posted online on Jan. 28, was addressed to “anyone who needs hope.”

“My name is Katy, and I am supposed to be on my honeymoon," the note read, according to the Daily Mail. "However, a week before I was supposed to marry the love of my life, my best friend, he passed away." 

Katy's fiance's name was Tre, according to the note.

“From the first time he held my hand, I knew this was the man I wanted to marry," the note continued. "We wanted to see the Mayan temple and ruins and he was very excited when we decided to go on this cruise."

Katy said she decided to make the journey in memory of Tre, even though they weren’t able to make the trip together.

“My words of encouragement [...] never give up -- easier said than done, I know, but try,” she wrote.

“There's so much life ahead and you never know when it's over," she added. "Always love. There's so much hurt and anger in this world you don't want to leave this world without love in your heart. Always be yourself and laugh, because the one for you will always love you truly for who you are and will never make you feel as if you have to change anything. The one for you will always make you feel special, like royalty. But remember, you need to feel and be the same to that person as well."

Katy also addressed a portion of her letter to whoever found and read it.

“Whoever finds this letter, I pray you find or have found that kind of love,” she wrote.

“That love that brings out the best in you, that makes you a better person," she added. And for anyone [who] has found love and lost it, keep loving others, don't let the love die. Try to laugh always, live life.”
