A Woman who walked on the beach, found a bottle with a Message in it!!
“Found in Florida! So one of the owners of a hotel, Judi was walking on the beach this morning cleaning up the junk that washed into shore and finds a bottle with a message in it. There is also some sand and 2 one-dollar bills. Once we get it open and read the notes we find out that it is in fact NOT sand.
It is the ashes of this woman’s husband of 70 years named Gordon. She writes that He loved to travel so she sent him traveling in a bottle with a note and money for someone to call home and tell her where he landed. He started at Big Pine Key in March of 2012 and then went to Islamorada where someone found him.
They added a note and sent him traveling again and he landed on our beach in Key Colony. Judi called the wife in Tennessee who was excited to know of Gordon’s travels! Judi added her note, we put him in a rum bottle (you know added a little fun to his trip) with the three notes. We added another dollar in case Gordon travels far and a long-distance call is needed. We will be having a memorial service or celebration of his life on our beach later today before sending him on his way again.”
The story was Gordon Scott Smith aka Skinny loved to travel with his wife Beverly. They would visit Florida every year as they loved the sun and the ocean.
In 2012 the couple celebrated their silver wedding anniversary with a trip to Costa Rica but two hours after they returned Skinny died suddenly at the age of 57, USA Today reports.
To honor her beloved travel-loving husband Beverly scattered some of his cremated remains at a lake in Tennessee, Costa Rica and inside a bottle thrown into water off the Florida Keys.
However, tucked inside the water bottle was a second note from a man named Ross, explaining that he had found Skinny earlier this month at Mile Marker 79 at Islamorada, Fla. “Please if you find him call Gordon’s loving wife and please call me and let us know where Gordon ended up … put a new note in with him and let him travel on,” Ross’ note reads. He clarified that the $2 tucked in the bottle was from Beverly to cover the cost of a phone call.
We hope to hearing this sweet news everyday…
