WALTON COUNTY, Ga. - A family of four in Monroe, Georgia discovered a wet balloon in their backyard that contained a photo and wish of a little boy to his father in heaven.
"I saw an object in our yard and didn't know what it was," said Suzanne Edwards. "It was raining all day on Tuesday, so we didn't go outside, so we were able to retrieve the object this morning."
The object was a helium balloon that floated into their backyard and landed on their hearts. "My husband walked in the door with a tear in his eye and told me to read the note. After I read the note, I just cried!"
The note found read, "Dad, I wish you were here so we could have fun together. I wish you a Merry Christmas. I hope you tell God to give me those presents. I hope you are happy in heaven. If you are, ok then tell me. I love you, Alexander."
"I really want to meet this little boy. It was such an intimate letter between him and his daddy. Knowing that I am a believer, I want to let Alexander know that heaven is a happy place and want to reassure him of that. What a better time of year than not to take your family for granted."
