I received a phone call from Brett Wednesday morning about his lost wedding band. He had lost his ring the afternoon before. I was on my way to a job site, so I told him I would meet him in a few hours. I asked him if he was in “the dog house”. “Maybe a little”!
Meeting up with Brett that afternoon, he explained his wedding band loss. He had taken his ring off to put on sun screen. He placed the gold band inside of the baby shade tent and had forgotten about it. At the end of the day they carried their belonging up to the beach house. As Brett was returning to the beach to retrieve the shade tent a gust of wind sent the tent tumbling down the beach. He caught up with the tent 40 yards away. This was when he remembered his wedding band. There were a couple families camped out inside the search area but a small space around the tent location was available to swing the coil. I was really hoping that the ring was in this 10 yard area. Right before I put my head phones on I asked Brett if he wanted to bet money on finding this ring in 10 minutes of less. “I like your confidence” was his reply. As I started the grid search Brett had gone over to the other people sitting under their shade canopy and was explaining to them what was going on. Only a minute and a half had passed when I walked over to him and held out the sand scoop so he could pluck his wedding band from the bottom. Everybody present cheered in disbelief. I could see stress instantly come off of Brett’s shoulders as he placed the wedding band back on his finger. The same band that his wife Rochelle placed on his finger a few years before. Rochelle and family cheered from the balcony of the beach house as Brett held up his hand in a triumphant gesture.
Brett and Rochelle, thank you for your trust in The Ring Finders, and again for the generous reward.
