After her husband died, Ruth's health began to decline. It seemed like all of the years snuck up on her all of a sudden. It wasn't long before Ruth decided she was going to move into an assisted living facility. Amy's heart was heavy, but Ruth told her that she needed to live her own life. There was no need for Amy to worry about her grandmother. But Amy still insisted on helping Ruth pack her things. Soon, they would discover a hidden treasure.

Ruth's attic was packed full of decorations, toys, photos, suitcases, bags, awards, letters, furniture, pots, pans, trophies, cutlery, plates. There were cobwebs that hid spiders in every single corner. The old wood floor creaked with every step they took. And then, Amy spotted something tucked away in a corner. Behind piles of junk, there was a dust-covered decorative box. Was Ruth hiding something?

Amy asked her grandmother about the box, but Ruth just looked confused. Was there a secret she was hiding? How could someone not know what was in their attic? Amy finally opened the box and discovered Ruth's wedding dress from 1953. Oddly enough, the dress was still in perfect condition. Neither of them would expect that their fun would cause such chaos.

Time may have affected Ruth mentally and physically, but it hadn't touched her wedding dress in the slightest. Amy couldn't believe how beautiful the white lace was and she complimented Ruth on her dress. Ruth didn't see it as just a dress. To Ruth, it was symbolic of 65 years of marriage. No one ever thought Ruth would react to the death of her husband like this.
