Can you imagine what it’s like to lose everything, including your job, your home, and your father’s ashes soon after he unexpectedly passed away?

That’s what happened to one Maryland woman who wishes to remain unidentified. She lost everything in such a short period of time, and her world was totally flipped upside down.

Meanwhile, another Maryland woman, Martha Reingruber, recently lost her husband of 20 years.

Martha was out shopping at the local thrift store one day when she came across a rather strange item. It was a shiny gold cardboard box, containing a bag of powder. Upon closer inspection, Martha saw that it was a bag of human ashes.

Right away, she knew that she had to reunite the box with a rightful relative.

She used the tag to find out the name of the man whose ashes were in the box, and she came up with Michael T. Boone, who passed away in 2014 at the age of 61. But there was no information on his relatives.

When she reached out to Fox 5 for help, the answer came very quickly.

Below, watch the incredibly emotional reunion between this woman who lost everything, including her father’s ashes, as well as the meeting of the two women who have both recently lost a loved one. The purely human connection and mutual thankfulness is a reminder that there really is a bit of good in this world, and that there is always hope, even when it really doesn’t seem that way.
