Message in a bottle, 19 years later
Pinellas County, Florida - The story would be unbelievable if it wasn’t true, but the circumstances surrounding it are nothing short of miraculous.
Nineteen years ago, a seven year old boy visiting Clearwater threw a bottle in the water with a message inside. It read “To whoever finds this please write me a letter and let me know.”
Just a few days ago that bottle was found in a canal behind Don Smith’s home in St. Petersburg. So Don, with the help of the St. Petersburg Times, tracked down the boy’s mother, who just happened to be visiting the Bay Area this week.
The two met and Don handed over the message. Both believe the bottle is a special message and gift from her son who sent it because he passed away six years ago.
