And thanks to a Facebook post, the 1949 St. Hubert High School ring was returned to the owner’s daughter.

“I almost didn’t answer the Facebook post. I’m not a Facebook persons, but something just made me and I’m glad that I did,” said Andrea Forrester.

Forrester said her mother lost the ring 40 years ago. Her mother passed away 30 years ago.

She says she plans to keep the ring somewhere in her home where she can see it every day.
