Teen Daughter Dies And Necklace Goes Missing, Then Mom Sees Another Parent With It On Facebook – (

Vicky Pyne was visiting New York City when she lost her most treasured possession, her necklace, a reminder of her daughter who had passed away. She couldn’t find it and had to go back to the UK, but Facebook helped reunite her with that priceless talisman.

Vicky realized she lost her daughter’s necklace on the crowded streets of Manhattan. She panicked and tried retracing her steps, but no luck. Heartbroken, Vicky had to go back to her home in Manchester, England. She couldn’t believe the necklace wasn’t going with her. Immediately, she took to Facebook to post a public plea. What were the chances someone would not only find this priceless necklace in the world’s busiest city, but also see her Facebook post and return it?

Every kid who plays sports should watch Tony Romo’s speech about losing his dream job – (

It’s not every day that a professional athlete shows the amount of class that Tony Romo presented as he spoke about losing his spot to Dak Prescott. We wish you the best, Mr. Romo; if nothing else your composure has proved what a great leader you are and that any team would be lucky to have you.

While admitting to some frustration, the Cowboys star showed leadership in supporting Prescott and making it clear he did not want to become a distraction for the team, which has the best record in the NFL. “(Prescott has) earned the right to be our quarterback,” Romo, who is the team’s highest-paid player, said. “As hard as that is for me to say, he’s earned that right. He’s guided our team to an 8-1 record, and that’s hard to do.” Prescott has thrown 14 touchdowns and only two interceptions since becoming the starter. Romo suffered a back injury in the preseason in August that sidelined him until last week.
