Today we recieved an email from Melinda. Here is the email.
Brad, Sarah and Family,
I am so sorry for the passing of Baby Jack. Myself and family send our condolences. Reason for this email is that I am from Indiana Pennsylvania and my boyfriend (a gas well tender for a local company) called me one day and said hey did you hear of any balloon releases for a Baby Jack and I said no, he said well I found one at my pump jacks in Kittanning, Pa. I said I will check into it. Well I am a big facebook fan so I posted it on my page and no one herd anything about it, but everyone had wished me luck trying to find info on it! So when Jay got home I got the balloon with a note card attached from him and read it and on the back had a note from Aunt Val! This really made me think where did this come from, well this evening (7/6/10) I was at work and he texted me and said he may have found out where the balloon came from and I was shocked that it had went over 900 miles away from where the release was! How shocked I was to then find your email and thought I would love to contact you and let you know how amazingly far it had gone!!! Again I am so sorry for the passing of that precious little bundle of joy! My heart goes out to you and the family!! Please respond to this and tell if there is an Aunt Val I have her note! Going to put it in my Bible!!! Love Melinda
Needless to say, that is incredible, How something so small and fragile could drift so far, and then to be found and be in contact with us, is very touching.
