  • Gary, I can't thank you enough for your help and your professionalism (2015)



    Let me first start off by thanking you for finding my ring.

    This ring means more to me than the appraised value as it represents not only The Citadel but also the hard work and perseverance that was needed to while attending the school.

    When I first lost the ring I thought it was forever lost. Your professionalism and understanding of the situation eloped ease some of the anxiety of still not having my ring after hours of searching.

    There are very few people who go out of their way to help others but you changed your daily routine and came down to help on the same day. I can't thank you enough for your help and your professionalism throughout this process of finding my ring.

    Thank you again and God bless,

    James J. Hurton
