That is amazing and wonderful!!! There are good people in the world still!

Roy (my husband) went into the Marine Corp shortly after graduating in '64. He went to boot camp in San Diego. They were being measured for their uniforms and they were told that there were to be no watches and rings. Roy stuffed his senior ring and watch into the pocket. Unfortunately, it was the pocket of the uniform. Later on, he realized that his watch and ring were long gone. We got married when he came home from boot camp and after a short time in Tenn, we went to Yuma, AZ. One day, the phone rang and someone asked me if someone there had lost a senior ring. At first, I said no, but then realized they were talking about Roy's ring. Someone found it on the beach at San Diego and sent it to the Balfour Co. and they tracked the ring to Roy. We were pretty amazed. People can do the right thing and sometimes it is so important to the person who is on the other end of that act.

So glad that you got your ring back.

Eric, I'm so glad you found your ring! I felt terrible that we couldn't find it.
