Man Is Reunited With His Wallet After 47 Years
A New Jersey man is receiving his stolen wallet 47-years after the fact.
Dennis Helmer, a 78-year-old from Westmont, was notified by a man named Don Williams that his wallet was found by a contractor in his home's ceiling. Inside the wallet, there was Helmer's 1957 Selective Service card, a St. Christopher Medal, a 1956 receipt for his 168-dollar tuition payment to Drexel University and even a picture of Helmer posing with his high school prom date.
Helmer said the wallet was stolen during a robbery at his parent's home in 1970. He apparently didn't know it was missing until he received the call from Williams. Source: Philly.com

A PERFECT MATCH MADE IN WALMART
A Michigan couple recently tied the knot at the place that brought them together – Walmart.
Merissa Anderson and Dave Medford were both employees at the Walmart store in Guilford, Connecticut, four years ago when they met and began dating.
In the beginning, there were some complications because they were dating and also working together. But when Dave decided to transfer to a different department, there were fewer conflicts and they soon became engaged.
They decided to move to Michigan to be closer to Merissa's family and when they started planning their wedding, they joked about having it at Walmart. But then after a while they realized that most of the people they know all work at Walmart so they figured it was the most appropriate place to get married.
Surrounded by family and co-workers, Merissa and Dave exchanged vows at the store's garden center patio. The store's manager officiated the ceremony and the reception was held in the employee break room. The cake, of course, came from the Walmart bakery. (People)
