Narenda was at cricket practice when he noticed he lost his ring. As they searched in declining evening light his coach Raj visited my Ringfinder Directory listing and called me for help. I was home, but an hour away, so when I arrived at the Troy Community Center it was just getting dark. We searched without success until well after dark.
Naren explained the ring was a very dear gift from his mother, it was clear he was not ready to give up the search. I knew the ring was somewhere on the field, and thanks to Coach Raj, I had a good Idea where to look.
I returned the following day in very poor weather for another unsuccessful hunt. On my third attempt I set the marker flags for my search over a much larger area than the markers Coach Raj had made indicating Narenda’s position during the cricket drill. Sure enough the ring turned up just outside the area of the original search.
When I recovered the ring I was dismayed to find it had been bent. Knowing I had to beat the lawn mowers I started early hoping to prevent the possibility of damage. Indeed there had been no mowing due to the rain. The ring looked reparable and I told Coach Raj of the damage when I called him with the news of the find.
Narenda came that evening eager to pick up the ring. I asked him again to describe his ring, a small gold ring with white stones in a square pattern. He laughed when I told him it had been damaged, he admitted to denting the band himself and pantomimed the catch he made when he dented it. His smile told the story when he slipped the ring back on his finger.
