NEW BERN, N.C. (AP) — Jerry Eubanks has his old wedding band because his grandson likes playing in the mud.
The Sun Journal of New Bern reports (http://bit.ly/12LhCSP) that 7-year-old Liam Eubanks was staying with his grandparents and was playing with his toys in the mud behind their house when he stepped on something. Liam said he told Shirley Eubanks he thought he'd found some treasure.
Actually, it was the 14-karat band Jerry Eubanks lost in 1982. Eubanks remembered he had been painting the workshop behind his house. Several days later when the family was going to the beach his wife noticed the ring missing.
Jerry Eubanks said he may wear the old ring again, but also said he would leave it with his grandson as something he could treasure the rest of his life.
