On Thursday July 07 , 2011 I answered a call from Andrea who lives in Toronto.
She wasn’t quite sure where it had fallen off, as she was gardening in both the front and back yards. It may have been anywhere around her property. What made me nervous however was the fact that she told me at one point while working away, she had to run after her young daughter down the street and into a neighbours yard. I was just hoping the ring didn’t come off near the road or sidewalk as there is quite a bit of foot traffic in the area.. Because of our conflicting schedules, I couldn’t meet her until early Sunday morning.
Anyway, after arriving Sunday morning, I had the pleasure of meeting Andrea and her husband Scott at their beautiful home. After Andrea showed me the various areas around the property where she was gardening, I started my search.
After eliminating the backyard, I moved to the front of the house and around five minutes later got my favourite sound under the search coil, the sweet, rounded sound of a ring.
Parting the grass in the pinpointed area revealed an absolutely gorgeous ring. No wonder she had been so upset since Wednesday..!!
Andrea was watching me search and when I showed her the ring I could see that she was overwhelmed with joy, excitement and relief , all at the same time. Then the tears came which really choked me up. I then had the biggest, most sincere hugs I’ve ever received in my life. I’ll remember that for years to come.
I cannot begin to tell you how happy I was to be able to return your ring to you Andrea. I was walking on a cloud and don’t remember my drive home.
Thank you very much for the generous reward.!!
I really hope to meet up with you and Scott again soon.
You are very, very nice people.
I love this job..!!!
