Good Samaritan Finds Notes From Heaven, Plays Angel To Children

Stream WZTV Fox 17 Newscasts LIVE starting with Fox 17 This Morning at 5am and News at 9pm.


A San Diego mother of three children lost her battle with cancer just days before Mother's Day. Heartbroken, her kids searched for ways to raise the money needed to hold a proper funeral. 


According to a Huffington Post report, they were able to raise some money through donations and bake sales, but far from the total needed. In her honor on Mother's Day, they released balloons with notes attached, sharing the love and sorrow for their mom. One of those balloons landed on a good Samaritan's doorstep. 


Yvette Melton posts on her Go Fund Me page that she walked outside on Mother's Day and found the balloons. After researching who they come from, she spoke to her boss and together they have helped raise more than double the $10,000 price tag needed to bury and have a proper funeral for the children's mom.
