Believer Finds Heartwrenching Note In A Bottle That Left Him No Other Option

Steve Mershon is a Florida man who was walking along the beach when he found a bottle that had washed ashore. Inside it was a handwritten note, written by a 5-year-old boy. It was a heartfelt tribute to his best friend. The little boy, Jonothan Torres, wrote:

“If you were alive me and you will be playing football, soccer and basketball and be playing with Matthew and Oscar and Brandon,” the letter read.

“You were my best friend.”

“I hope you [have] fun with Jesus.”

Mershon was so moved by the letter that he wrote:

“First of all, let me tell you what a strong little man you are for writing your best friend that letter.”

“You show so much love in your heart way beyond your years.”

“Your parents, friends, teachers, myself, and all of my friends who know I found your letter are so proud of you.”

“Daniel is a lucky guy to have you as a best friend.. I’m so sorry he passed.”

He also noted his faith in Jesus by writing:

“[Daniel] and Jesus are watching and rooting for you.”

“I think Daniel put the bottle ashore where I found it, and his friend Jesus led me to it.”

Mershon's response has since gone viral with thousands of views.

He told TODAY why he decided to write the letter by stating, To see some little kid pouring his heart out to his buddy like that. I felt like I had to respond. It didn’t just touch me — it’s touching everybody. People have shown so much love.”

Mershon plans to send the bottle back out to sea to touch more people.
