The Atherton Drug Store Explosion, Halloween 1963 that killed 7 and injured about 25 people, brought the best and and maybe the worse of people. Jim Lamer was there and was knocked down. That night he was to be the best man at Gresham Howren's wedding. In his pocket was an engagement  ring he was to give to his fiance. It was missing after the fiasco. It is believed that probably somebody thought Jim was dead and took the ring.
