He found the unusual recipient while fishing.
The bottle washed up on shore.
It couldn’t be open by hand
So a cork screw was used
The bottle contained this rolled up paper
It was laminated and sealed with tape so it won’t be destroyed by humidity
It had the following message
“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 an send me back on my journey. Thanks and God bless, Mel’s family.”
He resealed the bottle
And sent Mel back to his eternal journey
Good bye, Mel!
