"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."
