“We walked up and she said, ‘yeah I’m looking for my brother’ and we both looked at each other and froze,” Isbell said.
Linda told them her brother’s remains were in a porcelain urn among the pile of debris that use to be her home. After 15 minutes of searching, they found the urn completely intact with nothing but a red scratch from where a brick was laying on it.
Isbell and Copley say when they heard she was looking for an urn among all the debris they had little hope of finding it without it being shattered to pieces.
“It was all a shock,” Isbell said.
“It was just pure emotion, she began crying,” Copley said. “She said it can only go up from here given the fact we found that.”
The two men plan to continue giving their time to communities in need.
“Now the next big thing is being able to get water for the entire community,” Isbell said.
