Mimi Fery poses for a photograph Tuesday, July 9, 2013, in New York. Her daughter, Sidonie Fery, was about 10 years old when she and a playmate placed a note inside a ginger ale bottle and threw it in the Great South Bay off Long Island. Sidonie was tragically killed in a fall at a Swiss boarding school in 2010. But two years later, as workers were cleaning up a Patchogue, Long Island, beach after Superstorm Sandy, they discovered the note Sidonie had sent. Although it only traveled a mile or two from where it was deposited, the message now has special meaning for Mimi. (AP Photo/Frank Franklin II) less
