My cousin, Gwen, whom I gave away in marriage less than a year ago, was featured on her local news in one of those incredibly heartwarmng human interest stories (see video above).
Gwen reports what happened
What a story this is….I lost my senior ring 26 years ago. I received an instant message last night from Stephy Vela. Her husband was on the roof of their rent house checking for damage from Harvey when something caught in a shingle got his attention. It was my class ring. They investigated on Facebook and tracked me down. Their rent house is a block or so from where we lived on 40th St. in Port Arthur. She sent me a photo and yes, it is my ring. My mom passed away my senior year and wasn’t there for graduation preparations. The only thing she got to be a part of was choosing and getting my senior ring. I am still speechless and so very thankful. 26 years and it was found on a roof…..thanks mom and thank you Colten and Stephy Vela. Update – catch the whole story on Channel 12 News at 10:00 tonight.
