Help a Grieving Widow Find Out How To Preserve a Sign From Her Husband


In a touching change of pace from what is usually batshit crime news out of Florida, a Shalimar woman named Sally Colburn who lost her husband in May had been waiting for her to send him a sign.

Finally, he did — by way of a heart-shaped potato (not pictured) that she found in a bag she’d bought before he’d died, she told the NFW Daily News. (I totally believe in this shit, by the way. I’m right there with you, Sally.) It’s like a more romantic version — or, uh, at all romantic — of the Jesus butthole dog.

“I thought it must be a sign,” she said as she held the wrinkled potato in the palm of her hand. “We’d been married almost 50 years.”
“It’s so unique,” said Colburn, who lives in Shalimar. “Somebody told me to put shellac on it.”

This is a good question to ask a bronze casting service, but I just called three, and they are all closed over the weekend. But if you’re reading this, Sally, you should try on Monday — there’s a bronze casting keepsake service in Sanford that sounds like they might do it. Anyone else who lives in or around Shalimar, please leave suggestions in the comments!
