Woman's Message In A Bottle Containing Late Husband's Ashes Found In Spain

Woman's Message In A Bottle Containing Late Husband's Ashes Found In Spain

A woman's message in a bottle containing her husband's ashes has been found two years after it was sent out to sea.

And the message sure did see some sights on its journey, having travelled all the way from the US to Spain where it was discovered by a family.

Mary Whitt from Somerset in Kentucky said she was on holiday when she took a trip to Daytona Beach in Florida with her family.

The vacation marked two months since her husband Jerry died suddenly in 2018.

Mary and Jerry's daughter Emilee told WKYT that her dad was a loving family man.

She said: "Whenever it came to anything, his work, his children, his wife, he was always very passionate."

However, due to work commitments, Mary and Jerry never really got the chance to go on holiday.

​Decapitated Dolphins Found On Beach In Spain

When she travelled to Florida with her relatives, it was a holiday of many firsts - the first time she'd got on a plane and the first time she'd seen the ocean.

When they arrived at the beach, in a bid to share the experience with her late husband, the widow decided to put Jerry's ashes into a bottle with a photo and a note before throwing it into the Atlantic Ocean.

"I decided to put Jerry's ashes in a bottle, and his picture and a note," she added. "I thought that this would be a good way that he could travel."

Two years later, Mary was surprised to receive an email from the Alvarez family in Carballo, Spain, who said they'd been at the Razo Beach on the northwest coast of the country on 13 August when they found the bottle.

Mary requested that they scatter his ashes into the sea and they kindly obliged, even sending her a video of the touching moment.

Speaking about the kind gesture, Mary said: "It touched all of our hearts. It's just so heartwarming and touching that they are this good to us."

It has led to an unexpected friendship between the two groups, with the Alvarez family inviting the Whitts to come and visit them in Spain.

Emilee added: "I think he [Jerry] would be so excited to think that we have friends in Spain now, you know, we video chat with them, we talk often and he would have absolutely loved that."
