A bible that was left on a plane decades ago has been returned to its rightful owner 36 years later.

Walking the aisle after a flight to San Francisco, former flight attendant Lori DeVoll discovered a bible that one of the passengers had left behind. The Bible belonged to a man named Adam Lopez.

Due to her busy travel schedule, DeVoll said she simply "tucked it away somewhere and forgot about it."

Earlier this year, DeVoll and her husband moved from Colorado to Fresno, California. While going through a box of keepsake items, she came across the Bible she had found years ago.

"I found the little Bible and I remembered there was an address in it. I opened it and to my surprise it was a Fresno address," she said.

Shortly after her discovery, she searched the owner's name online and learned that he was the pastor at Lifepoint Worship Center in Fresno. She contacted Lopez and the two met up last week.

"I never thought I would get it back but it sure brought some memories back," Lopez said. "I don't know how things work in life. I know the good Lord has his own way of dealing but I'm happy that I got it back. It was a feeling of joy."
