Dennis Boothby - Testimonials
So thank you so so much again you have no idea how we appreciate your time and dedication of helping people I want to thank this man Dennis Boothby. (2023)
I would like to thank you so very much. The day the ring was lost I never seen two sad people as sad as they were. We looked and looked and we were ready to leave for the day. And as I was talking to people they were talking about people that metal detect in the morning on the beach. So as I was talking to Brandon I said we will wake up early in the morning and we will go down to the beach in hopes of finding someone that did metal detecting. As we were walking along the beach searching figured it would be way under the Sand by then. As we were ready to call it quits we saw a man with a metal detector walking. I had approached the man and was talking to him about it and I called Brandon over and he described it to the gentleman. I have never seen anyone so eager to help someone in need. As we were back at our Airbnb just talking with everybody he gets a phone call from Dennis. And then he sends a picture of the Ring to Brandon. I’ve never seen faces light up like Brandon and Larissa’s after they got back to show the ring to us their luck and smiles were priceless. I just want to thank you!! You made a day so special for them. So thank you so so much again you have no idea how we appreciate your time and dedication of helping people
I want to thank this man Dennis Boothby.
After looking and looking the day before and getting up early to go look for this ring. Honestly I didn’t think there was hope. After talking the day before to people they said there are people that metal detect the shore in the early hours. Brandon and I (his father) got up early in hopes of finding someone that metal detects. We were not seeing anyone detecting. We were about to call it quits. Along comes a man metal detector. So I had approached him to talk to him. I don’t think I have seen the willingness of anybody that was eager to help. I just want to say from the bottom of my heart THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! To see them be so down on a vacation, and when Brandon got the call the look on his face and Larissa’s faces when they came back was priceless. I know it made my day. And again thank you so much!!
