I want to thank someone.
I came down to Amellia iIsland with my son for a vacation. Nathan had been dealing with some medical issues, and had recently completed treatment, and this vacation was a celebration.
Everyone has been so kind and helpful to us, it has really been refreshing.
One of the things we enjoyed was going to Fort Clinch. We went there Sunday the 17th. We fished at shark tooth beach. From there we went over to the beach where you have the waves and body surfed the waves and relaxed in the sunshine. It was a perfect day.
As we were getting ready to leave, Nathan realized he had left his tackle box on the beach. We were in full panic mode. it was gone. My son was heartbroken. We had one hope left. We went to the ranger station, The ranger and the staff reunited my son with his tackle box.
i am writing this in the off chance that whoever turned it in can read this. We are so thankful to you for turning it in. Nathan has little money and few hobbies. Fishing is his one joy. He has spent all his money, more money than he should have, LOL, on fishing gear. This tackle box and its contents were brand new and worth between $1,000, and $1,500.
i can’t meet you in person, but thank you again, from the bottom of my heart. Your good deed had more impact then you will ever know.
God bless you.
