This Salvation Army received a strange donation last week – here’s what they found

NEW YORK - NOVEMBER 20: Funeral director Peter DeLuca, owner of Greenwich Village Funeral Home, holds a cremation urn in the showroom of his funeral parlor on November 20, 2008 in New York City. New technologies, such as flat screen televisions for video memorials, ornate and even sports-team themed cremation urns are also slowly being introduced at funeral homes. Despite the currently languishing economy, the funeral home world is readying for an upswing nationally, as the recession-resistant business prepares for an expected rise in death rates as baby boomers start to reach old age in the coming decade.

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.”

To see more from Doc, visit his channel on TheBlaze and listen live to “The Morning Blaze with Doc Thompson” weekdays 6 a.m. – 9 a.m. ET, only on TheBlaze Radio Network.
