Kelly Rose’s Good News For People Who Love Bad News

One thief has apparently had a change of heart –- a decade and a half after stealing a couple’s wedding rings.  According to Reddit, the Riphagens lost their gold rings at a party several years ago. Recently, they received a letter from a “dumb kid who wants to right a wrong” with a heartwarming apology.  The rings are the mother’s wedding ring, a ring the father gave the mother when their first child was born, and one set of grandparents’ wedding bands that had been intended for the children when they reached adulthood. These were stolen during a party that one of their (now adult) children threw during high school, about 15 years ago.  The Riphagens’ daughter first shared the image of the letter on Facebook among her friends, as a “thank you” to the anonymous sender. From there, it continued to circulate the site until it made its way to Reddit.  “The family doesn’t really care who sent it, certainly doesn’t want to seek out who did it, and is just grateful to have these things back,” WhoBeKnow posted. “They’re a lovely family and I’m so happy to see these sentimental things returned to them.”
