Maggie Holbrook always thought it strange that the still waters of White Lake and not the flowing current of the nearby Wolf River was the vessel used to conceal the time capsules of area school children. That was until one of those little messages in a bottle floated back to the surface.

A note, cloaked inside an empty vanilla container and freed of the weight that had held it to the bottom, will soon take a spot on Holbrook’s wall after washing up on shore early this spring. Eleven years ago it was written by her son, Joshua Baker, and found only a year after his death following a motor vehicle accident in California.

(…)

Baker, a U.S. Marine who died last February after returning home following a stint in the Middle East, was only 10-years-old when he penned the note as part of a school project.
