When Abraham Silverman left for World War II, he brought with him a silver bracelet, a gift from his wife. Years later, a then 9-year-old Cindy Ellingson of Minnesota discovered it in her mother's "treasure" box. For decades the bracelet remained there without any explanation. But recently, after her mother passed, Ellingson went on a mission to return the bracelet to the rightful owner.
Working with ABC News in New York City, Ellingson was able to track down Rhonda Berkman, the daughter of Abraham and Ann Silverman, in Newton, MA.
Berkman, who says she had no idea the bracelet even existed until now, is "very, very, very happy it's come home."
The bracelet, which is engraved with Silverman's name and serial number on the front, and the message "I'll always love you, Ann" on the back, was a priceless memento of Berkman's parents' union. "It was a way of, you know, being immediately remembered. Something you could touch even though you were separated by distance and time," Berkman explains.
