  • We truly think of Tom as a friend now... (2019)


    Tom is a blessing. To be honest, I was not sure that this service was actually a possibility. It sounded way to good to be true. But, when I called Tom, he instantly said he was on his way and that he would give it a shot. Meanwhile, so many friends and family (and even strangers) told me it was going to be ok. They told me that the ring was only a piece of metal and that I should be thankful for my life and the lives of others that I love. Of course, I understand this since I have lost one too many in my life, and this entire situation made me appreciate all that I do actually have. Still, it hurt to lose such a sentimental piece. My mother in law who gave me this ring trusted me with it. When I called her to tell her that I lost it, she sang “Mother Ocean” by Jimmy Buffet to me focusing on the line “And in your belly you hold the treasures few have ever seen”. I was beginning to accept the lose since the ocean had my treasure, and after all, my husband and I are pirates, so it made sense. But, when Tom jumped off that ferry, we snatched him up on our golf cart and headed to the beach. He went straight to work and found the ring in about 20 minutes. My husband and I celebrated with each other, our friends, and our family. I learned so much through this experience: be thankful for what you had and what you do have, trust humanity, and never give up. Also, don’t put lotion on your ringed hands before swimming in the ocean, or if you do, TAKE OFF YOUR RINGS!

    We truly think of Tom as a friend now and hope to see him some time in the future.
