NEWPORT, R.I. (AP) — A college class ring lost decades ago has been found and returned to its owner in Rhode Island.
WLNE-TV reports (http://bit.ly/YIGjyW ) a man found the Bristol Community College class ring deep in the sand on Second Beach in Newport. It reads CHF on the inside, which was how its founder was able to find the owner four years later.
The 1982 graduate Charles H. Fallows has Alzheimer's, so his wife, grandchildren, and two daughters accepted the ring Thursday.
The man’s daughter, Cheryl Cantara, called it ‘‘a nice little miracle for us.’’
Fallows’ family says he was 40 and working two jobs when he got his associates degree at BCC, so the class ring meant a lot to him.
