Note found amid NY Sandy debris helps grieving mom

Sidonie Fery in a family snapshot. 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 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.
