(KCBD) Over the Fourth of July weekend, Addie Elizabeth Clark had multiple reasons to celebrate.
It was a moment that was in the making for over half a century, when 84-year-old Clark was reunited with her class of 1953 Howard Payne University ring that had been missing for 60 years.
It slipped off Clark's finger and to the bottom of Lake Nasworthy in San Angelo, Texas and she thought it was gone forever.
"I didn't think I would ever get it back," she said. "It's sand and mud everywhere out at the lake."
But she was wrong.
