Ellen & I got a call from our “The Ring Finders” website. It as about 8pm on Sunday evening. Shannon said that she and her husband had been at the local recreation center playground. Her husband took off his wedding ring and put it in his pocket so he would not scratch it while working out using the playground equipment as a gym.
Upon returning home he realized his ring was gone. He and Shannon searched for 6 days looking for the ring. She found us on the web and called. I told her I would come on on Monday morning after 9am, but after hearing her voice and talking to my wife. My wife convinced me to go do our 1st night search. We had our headlamps and our flashlight and the playground was in a nice area of town, so we decided to give it a try.
After 20 minutes of searching in the dark I hit something strong and thought to myself, I got it… but no it was a child’s charm bracelet. I stood up and got another hit just 2 feet from the bracelet. I bent down using my pinpointer and light and there was the ring. I had to use the flashlight to be sure I had Shannon’s husband’s ring. It was.
I called Shannon at 9:30pm and she seemed concerned when she realized it was me, I said hello and ask her if she would like to come up to the park playground and pick up her husband’s ring. She was estastic. She said she would be right down. She arrived in 15 minutes and was extremely grateful. This is my favorite part of this hobby, seeing the smiles, seeing the relief, it is a win, win moment for everyone.
Now I thought this adventure was over, but on Monday I received a very special text message from Shannon. I have pasted the text in below…
“” Thank you again sooo much, Don!! I surprised Aaron with his ring when he got home from work last night…. I sat him down and proposed to him :). Luckily he said yes 🙂 We are both so happy to have his ring back. You and your wife are so wonderful! It was an honor meeting you two! “”
Another successful NIGHT find for The Ring Finders”
