EUGENE, Ore. — A lost wedding ring is now back in the hands of its owner, thanks to the kindness of a stranger.
Alaina Kitz was at the Springfield DMV on June 18. She drew ticket number 18, but when the line barely moved, she handed her ticket to a stranger with a young child who held ticket 65, and she left.
Little did she know that little favor she did would be repaid in a big way.
Kitz left her wedding ring on her seat.
When the woman she handed her ticket to sat down, she found Kitz’s ring.
The two never exchanged information or knew each other’s names.
The stranger, a woman named Joy, contacted KEZI 9 News and asked to help get the word out in hopes of finding Kitz.
Kitz called the DMV, who mentioned to her about the story on KEZI.
On June 29, they met again and Kitz got her ring back. She says she and her husband Kristopher are extremely grateful.
“He’s happy for me that I got it back, of course. I think he wants to super glue it on my finger but, you know. He’s pretty easy-going. I’m pretty lucky,” Kitz said.
Kitz says through all this her biggest fear was never seeing her ring again, but she’s glad there are good people like joy out there.
Kitz says her wedding ring is symbolic for her and her family, and she’s thankful joy took care of it until it was back in her hands.
