STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep, proud to report that the ashes are back.
Yesterday, we told you of the woman from Elmira, New York who sold a ceramic turtle at a yard sale. She hadn't realized it contained the ashes of her husband's first wife. The customer spoke of using it as a cookie jar. But Anita Lewis got publicity for her drive to recover the turtle, and somebody tipped off the local paper. The turtle and the ashes turned up at a Salvation Army thrift store.
