They say that one man's trash is another man's treasure, but in the case of a woman in Amarillo, it was an urn that turned out to be a diamond in the rough.

This woman recently took to Facebook to share her unexpected discovery - an urn that she stumbled upon that just so happened to be found on the street.

I'd imagine that the woman thought it might have been a case for some headphones maybe or something of little value. However, any presumptions about the case were definitely short-lived as she soon realized that the case had an urn inside of it and the urn likely contained the remains of someone's loved one. Thankfully she quickly took to Facebook to share her discovery, trying to locate to family of these ashes.

While the situation may seem like a scene straight out of a comedy film, it's important to remember that the urn likely holds a great deal of sentimental value for someone. The woman's decision to approach the situation like this was definitely the right move.

The post has gained some traction on Facebook and on some local Amarillo Facebook groups, so it's definitely getting some attention. There are only three comments on the post, two of them asking where they were found.

But one of the comments in paticular caught my attention.


I doubt and hope that these ashes will be sold off, but it's a pretty funny thought.

Hopefully, the rightful owner of the urn will be found and the family can find some peace. Until then, the woman's post will be up in hopes that these ashes can be returned to it's rightful owner.
