I’ve gotten hugs for finding lost rings before, but I will say that this is the first time a guy has been so excited about getting his ring back that he hugged me!
A week prior, Terrence was carrying the Christmas tree from the house, around to the back, through the garage and down the driveway to set it by the garbage can, when he lost his loose-fitting wedding band. When his wife contacted me, I met Terrence at the house that same evening.
I started the search near the front door, following Terrence’s path to the garbage can. There were several large metal objects along the way that interfered with the search but, at the very end of the path, the ring was found near the garbage can area under the snow and pressed down into the ground. I almost didn’t dig for it because, in most cases, a recently lost ring is laying on top of the ground.
Terrence was completely thrilled to get his ring back, hence the hug. He said that it meant the world to him!
