The ring

The ring: In the rush to evacuate, Michele Sheffler accidentally left her grandmother’s wedding ring on a staircase landing. A friend later found it among the ashes of the collapsed roof. A Mother’s Day card with her daughter’s handprints, however, brought even more joy, Sheffler says. “Every other thing from her childhood is gone.”
