Man replants flowers he stole for Mother's Day 54 years ago5/13/2012
The spirit of Mother's Day has flowered in Nashville, where a guilt-ridden 72-year-man returned the plants he stole 54 years ago from Centennial Park. The unsolved crime germinated in May 1958 when Bill Teitleff, then a newly-married 18-year-old and short of money to buy his mom a Mother's Day present, stole two potted hydrangeas from the park. On Thursday, Teitleff returned plants that grew from the original roots system of the pilfered flowers on his mother's farm in Joy, Ky., -- and replanted them in her memory. "I thought all along that I was borrowing them," Teitleff said. "But this stayed with me all this time."
