A pilot named Jeff Fell is going viral after giving his retirement speech on a flight from Charlotte to Chicago last week. He’d flown for American Airlines for 32 years, and it was the final flight of his career. He gets choked up about a minute into the video, when he reveals his FAMILY is on board to help see him off. (Here’s the video.)……………. A Canadian guy recently lost a ring while swimming in the ocean in FL, and couldn’t find it. But he saw a guy named Joseph Cook with a metal detector and asked him to keep an eye out. After a full month of searching, he finally found the ring buried in the sand, and the guy and his fiancée drove 1,600 miles to thank him in person. They bought the ring over a decade ago and always planned to use it as a wedding band. They never got around to getting married, but plan to in 2025. They say Joseph will definitely be getting an invite. (Here’s the video. He finds it at :12, calls them on the phone at :36, and meets up with them at :55.)…………….And finally………..
Two World War Two vets from North Carolina named Millard Denson and Joe Stroud just met up after searching for each other for 76 years. They met in the Navy when they were 17 and were best friends. They’re both 96 now. A family friend helped Millard track Joe down this summer. They’ve been talking on the phone for the past three months, but met up in person last Friday in Durham.
