Winchester, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — It was a trip down memory lane. A local woman was reunited with a meaningful memory of her high school sweetheart with the help of the internet.
Pamela Sittig was walking down the street of her Winchester neighborhood when she noticed something on the ground. "It was literally a scrapbook from the 1980s that this girl had made for her boyfriend," Sittig said.
Pamela said she almost kept walking, but something made her stop. "This is someone's memory. If I had picked it up, I would want someone to search for me," Sittig said.
She said the only problem was the couple appeared to be from New York.
With only one full name to go off of, Sittig took to Google and the woman who made the scrapbook nearly 40 years ago just happened to pop up.
Conveniently, the woman who made the scrapbook, Leslie, was now living just 20 minutes away in Watertown.
Sittig then contacted Leslie. She asked Leslie if she wanted the book back, and Leslie said, "of course."
Leslie said she hadn't seen the book in nearly 40 years and how it ended up on the side of the road in Massachusetts is a mystery.
Leslie is now married, but she said she is happy to have this meaningful memory.
