Vial of ashes on necklace found by San Tan Valley Fry's Employee


Kim Stewart finds all sorts of things in the lost and found bin at her Fry's Food Store in San Tan Valley "They'll leave wallets and sometimes driver's licenses, and credit cards and things like that," she said. But there's one item a shopper recently lost that stood out more than most.

A few days ago, the longtime Fry's employee found a small pouch. When she looked inside, there was a necklace with a vial full of ashes and two charms. One said "Son." The other was inscribed, "I still need you close to me."

"I got very emotional," Stewart said. "I teared up a little bit, and I said a prayer because this is somebody's son. I wanted to hang on to it because I want to make sure that it gets back to the right hands."

As a mother herself, Stewart knew right away she had to get the ashes back to the grieving mom, so she posted her discovery on Facebook. She then decided to spread the word and expand her search through Arizona's Family.

"You know it's something so precious, and I can't imagine having to go through that," said Stewart.

It's unclear exactly when the ashes and necklace were lost, but it likely happened within the past few weeks. Stewart said if these were her child's ashes, she would want someone to do exactly what she's doing.

"Maybe it's not somebody that lives here," she said. "Maybe it's a snowbird or somebody just coming through," said Stewart. "I'm really praying this mom comes forward soon."
