Good News: Lost Bracelets, Liver Donors, and Taco Bell Babies

Here are a few more Good News stories making the rounds . . .

1.  There was a story last week about a lady who gave birth in a Golden Corral bathroom.  Now there’s another one about a Virginia woman who gave birth in the bathroom at Taco Bell.  (Weird . . . I don’t usually feel like I’m giving birth in the bathroom until AFTER Taco Bell.)

Like the first woman, she didn’t even know she was pregnant.  She and her new daughter Ayanna are both doing great.  (Here’s a photo.)

2.  A scuba diver in Myrtle Beach was searching for someone’s lost phone in a lake, but found something else instead:  A bracelet honoring a former cop named Gary Walker, who died early on in the pandemic.

His wife lost the bracelet in the lake three years ago and never thought she’d see it again.  She says it feels like her husband was looking down, trying to figure out a way to get it back to her.

3.  A 98-year-old World War Two vet in Missouri named Orville Allen passed away May 29th.  And his family says he was someone who always did whatever he could to help others.  So this is fitting.

He’s now the oldest American to ever donate their liver.  It was in remarkably good shape for his age and went to a 72-year-old woman who desperately needed it.

His family says it took a sad loss and added a “little ray of joy,” because he was “doing what he’d done all his life.”  Quote, “He was giving one more gift.”

It could help save more lives someday too.  A bunch of people at his funeral vowed to go to the DMV and add “Organ Donor” to their driver’s license.
