Family Heirloom Lost In Hawaii Found 50 Years Later
A FAMILY HEIRLOOM LOST OVER 50 YEARS AGO HAS BEEN RETURNED TO ITS OWNER THANKS TO A KINDHEARTED DIVER AND SOCIAL MEDIA. ALEXANDER "SANDY" MORISON WAS SURFING IN HAWAII IN 1966 WHEN HE RAN INTO A BOAT. I dove off my board, he hit my board, he kind a hit my shoulder and I tumbled around under the water and I came up and the cross was gone. THE GOLD CROSS FROM 1932 HAD BELONGED TO SANDY'S FATHER, WHO PASSED AWAY WHEN SANDY WAS FOUR. IT WASN'T SEEN AGAIN UNTIL MORISON GOT A MESSAGE ON FACEBOOK SAYING A DIVER IN WAIKIKI FOUND IT. JON ABILA FOUND THE HEIRLOOM IN SOME CORAL ON THE OCEAN FLOOR, IN THE SAME PLACE IT FELL 50 YEARS AGO. I felt like somebody earned it and I wanted to get it to the rightful owner. I feel absolutely blessed. I'm so humbled. A GROUP ON FACEBOOK RAISED MONEY TO HELP SANDY FLY FROM CALIFORNIA TO HAWAII AND THANK JON IN PERSON.
