Just over a week ago we brought you Sandy Eversole's heartbreaking story. A roadside memorial at the spot where her son David Muller had died 2 years ago was stolen. Sandy made a desperate plea for help. "We just want it returned... No questions asked." she told us, "If somebody can find it in their heart, please being it back my son can rest in peace."
A week later KTLF Christian radio received a call from an anonymous man who said he found the cross while on a hike. He remembered seeing Sandy's story on our newscast. "He showed up here in the morning with the cross. He asked us to keep it anonymous so we wanted to respect that." explains DJ Skip Rice, "He was just anxious to get it back to the family."
Not only did this mysterious Good Samaritan return the cross, he completely restored it. When we called Sandy, she couldn't believe the news. "I started crying and I was just ecstatic." she says.
Now the paint on David's cross is brand new. On it is written a message to live life to the fullest... ""Live Stronger" was David's motto. "It just makes you feel so good to know that there's so many good people out there that have good hearts." says Sandy.
Lying on top of the restored memorial was a note for Sandy and the rest of David's family. "Take up your cross and make a David S. Mueller legacy." Sandy reads, "What would David want you to do? He's telling you... Live stronger, you are loved. We are praying for you." Moved to tears by the letter and the incredible random act of kindness, Sandy cannot thank the stranger enough. "God bless you, whoever this was." she says "We are so grateful to you. Thank you so kindly."
ON Saturday August 6th, Sandy and the rest of David's family will be hosting the 3rd Annual David Mueller 5k Walk and Run. 100% of the proceeds will go to helping local student athletes. CLICK HERE for more information.
