Billy Ray Harris, a homeless man who garnered national attention for returning a woman’s diamond and platinum ring, reunited with his sister, left, on Sunday after 16 years apart.
A homeless man who made headlines for returning a diamond and platinum engagement ring to a woman who accidentally dropped it in his beggar’s cup has finally reunited with his long-lost family face-to-face.
“I never would’ve thought this,” Billy Ray Harris of Kansas City, Mo., said during a joyous reunion with his siblings on the “Today” show on Sunday. “This was a total shock.”
Harris, 55, hadn’t seen his relatives in nearly 16 years when he committed his life-changing good deed.
“I’d been worried sick about my family since the last time I saw them,” Harris told TODAY.com. “I totally lost contact with them back in the 90’s…I was kind of down in the dumps, and on the verge of giving up.”
