A lost wed­ding ring and an In­stant Pot spark a very spe­cial friend­ship

PORT OR­CHARD, WASH.

People (USA) - - SCOOP -

Joann John­son thought she’d never see her wed­ding ring again after los­ing the pre­cious piece while shop­ping at Wal­mart in Oc­to­ber. “I had given up hope,” says John­son, 67, who’s been mar­ried to her hus­band, Kip, for 20 years. But the re­tired school­teacher, who has stage 4 lung can­cer, re­ceived a hol­i­day mir­a­cle when she saw a Face­book post from Shiloah Avery, 29, who said she’d found a wed­ding ring in the box of an In­stant Pot she got for Christ­mas. “I was in dis­be­lief!” says John­son. “I got my ring back for Christ­mas!” Since then she and Avery, who lives just two miles away, have be­come fast friends. Says Avery: “There’s a les­son in do­ing the right thing and mak­ing new friends in the process.”
