Derek and Lauren Harp are a married couple that just celebrated their third wedding anniversary. Unfortunately, it was a bittersweet moment for the couple considering just a few days before they were both victims of the Route 91 mass shooting in Las Vegas.

Derek who serves in the National Guard sustained a gunshot wound and his wife Lauren is still recovering from a shot to the leg. As if that wasn't bad enough, Derek lost his wedding band during the chaos.

Thankfully, his family stepped up to the plate and contacted the jeweler with their story. The jeweler wasted no time replacing the band with the exact style of the one Derek had lost.

It may be a small gesture, but these are things that bring an ounce of light into these victim's darkest days.
