A woman is relieved after her engagement ring was returned to her against the odds.

Brit Morin, who happens to be the founder of Brit + Co and a is frequent guest on Good Morning America, says that she lost her engagement and wedding rings somewhere between New York and Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

According to USA Today, a United Airlines agent found the rings, which are welded together, at departure gate at Newark Liberty International Airport. The agent then put them in a safe until they could be safely handed off to a pilot.

That pilot was  Captain Jim Moorey, who kept them with him until he piloted a flight from Newark to San Francisco International Airport. That means he flew 2,565 miles just so they could be safely delivered.

That’s when he hand delivered the rings to Brit, along with a sweet note.

It read, “From day to day, I take pride in getting passengers from point A to point B safely and on time. Today, I’m happy to be able to be part of a team focused on making just one individual happy.”

Brit says that she believes the rings were lost when they fell out of her bag before she boarded her United flight.
