    I say the same.

    But, you will feel better later that you did it. You will be rewarded in time. There are always better things to find.

    I know you made them very happy.

    Did they offer you something? At least the gas money to go home to get it.

    Next time don't return to the scene of the find....at least for a few days.

    You have displayed great integrity...well done. There is no softer pillow than a clear conscience (ancient Chinese proverb).

    I feel for you, I know how much excitement is involved in finding gold. I'm not at all sure it can be replaced by a smile and a thank you. I have found lots of rings and only returned one to the owner. I am certain I returned it to the real owner and he nearly grabbed it out of my hand and mumbled something as he walked away. I'm not sure if it was "thank you" or "stupid" that he mumbled but I know what I felt like. At least your people hung out and got a picture and seem very happy for your help. Take pride in having done the right thing and remember what you would have felt like if you had told the young woman that you hadn't found her husband's ring. The really good news is you will find more. HH and best to you, Mike.

    Just think how proud God is of you. You're storing up your treasures in heaven.

    You did the right thing. It's just a gold ring to most people but it's something that has a lot of meaning to the true owner.

    Good man!

    The memory of a good deed will better by far a small wad of money.

    I concur with all of the others that you did the right thing and congratulations. You will find more rings and some you will be able to keep. You sure put a smile on their faces and I am sure you also felt good inside.
