Heartfelt Message from Texas Lands in Keystone Heights Yard
Published December 27th, 2012
KEYSTONE HEIGHTS - A Clay County woman received quite a surprise on Christmas Day, when she came home to find a handwritten note in honor of the Connecticut shooting victims right in her backyard...apparently delivered by balloons.
Keystone Heights resident Susan Elmore was at a Christmas dinner Tuesday night when she came home to find a bunch of balloons stuck on her fence. Upon closer inspection, she noticed a letter was attached containing a special message for the victims of the Connecticut school shooting.
The end of the letter was signed as coming from Texas, and judging by the handwriting, Elmore believes the note was written by two school-aged children.
"I believe in divine intervention," said Elmore. "God knew what he was doing when he let the balloons come into our yard, that we would do something about it. That we would try and get ahold of these kids and let them know that it wasn't in vain. That their balloons made it quite a ways away," said Elmore.
Elmore says she hasn't had any luck so far in trying to contact the children who wrote that letter, considering they only signed their first names. She says she was touched that kids so far away from Connecticut would go out of their way to remember those helpless victims.
