A Salvation Army location in New Hampshire got an unusual donation last week: an urn filled with ashes and engraved “Richard L. Pettengill 1929-1981.”
The store is keeping the urn and attempting to return it to the man’s relatives. Legally speaking, an urn and ashes are counted as private property, and while strange, it’s not a crime to donate or otherwise give away someone’s ashes.
Brad shared the story as part of the day’s headlines, and the guys talked about unusual items that people sometimes find at thrift stores. Doc’s hope is to find a rare historic document hidden in the back of a picture frame – but he’s pretty sure that won’t happen.
“’They found an original copy of the Declaration of Independence,’” Doc referenced a story from earlier this year. “I would get the urn with the ashes.”
