    High School ring returned after 62 years,

    My oldest return yet, She lost the ring in 1950, 62 years later, reunion with an added bonus! Read this blog by a Chicago Now blogger Teppi who helped put the pieces together.

    WTG Ron The only better feeling then finding a class ring is returning one. The longest lost one I have so far was lost for 3 years LOL. 62 years lost has to be some kind of record. Congrats.... Way to do the right thing. Karma will be coming your way.
