CLIFTON PARK, N.Y. -- A local woman is breathing a sigh of relief Monday after her beloved wedding ring is back on her finger after a Clifton Park store did a bit of routine cleaning.
It's not how it was lost, but how it was found that makes this story special.
The ring is an emotional subject for Gerldine Johnson, whose husband Richard gave her the ring 63 years ago on their wedding day. Another ring was added to her finger just four years ago, Richard's wedding band after he passed away. His band stayed safely in the back of her wedding ring on her finger -- until it slipped off last Thursday.
She says she felt it in her stomach when she realized her wedding rings were gone. She started retracing her steps. She checked in the bed -- maybe it fell off in the night? Maybe it was still in the water after doing dishes? After searching for hours she called the two stores she remembered being at that day, one of which was Aldi.
"So I went in and I said I lost my rings did anyone find them, she says no," said Johnson.
With a heavy heart, Johnson went back home and waited, hoping it would turn up. Friday passed with no sign of the ring, then came Saturday.
"Saturday after I got home from mass I saw the light blinking and they said ‘This is Aldi's.'"
The store had found her missing rings.
"Later that night the store manager was doing a routine cleaning under one of the coolers and out popped the two rings," she said.
So after three emotional days, Johnson placed those rings right back on her finger --where they belong.
