A stolen basketball hoop that once belonged to a boy who died in a crash has been returned to his grieving parents.

Raelene and Randy Robinson put a sign outside their home after the hoop and stand was stolen, just days before the 12th anniversary of their son's death. The hoop has special meaning to the family since Jeremy passed away. Even after he died, neighbors and complete strangers would show up to their home just to shoot some hoops.


Sometime before midnight, the family learned it had been dropped off at Norseman Elementary School, near their house. "Our other two sons are beside themselves as well. We never thought it was going to come back. I didn't either. But you know what? Sometimes there's a happy ending," said Randy Robinson.

They say they are so happy and relieved to have it back. And the timing is perfect. Tuesday is the 12th anniversary of Jeremy's death.

To celebrate the return of the hoop, they are planning a potluck at their home to bring together everyone who uses the hoop.
