In last Sunday's Living section, The World-Herald told the story of Leonard Pithan, 81, and Mary Christensen, 78, and the class ring they both cherished.
They were high school sweethearts in Charter Oak, Iowa, and Leonard gave Mary that ring when they started going steady. They went their separate ways after Leonard graduated, marrying other people and raising families. They met up again in Charter Oak, starting to date again in their 70s, and when it got serious, Leonard gave her the class ring again.
Now, they're married, pictured above after the ceremony at Presbyterian Church of the Master last weekend.
