    Just kidding, sorry Bell.

    So a little more drama. I told you that Winston and I have a mutual friend. I just talked to her and she says that she grew up with Winston. Around the year 2000 she started dating Winston's younger brother. This brother then died in the 9/11 WTC attack and because of both their loss, she and Winston became close friends.

    I contacted Winston thru Facebook and now will see whats happens.
    Its his ring and if he wants it he'll get it back. Even though he may sell the thing for cash, I cant keep it or the money I would get for selling it unless he says he doesnt want it.
    Hey, like someone else said, maybe Ill get an Honorable Mention on here and go on to find something even better for doing this deed.

    Well, Winston finally got back to me.
    He was super shocked and I was glad to see how happy he was that I found it.
    He thought his dog had swallowed it 11 years ago.

    Anyway, the ring is heading to its owner and I'm happy its going home.

    Thank you all for your input, interest and assistance. Its been a fun experience and even though I dont get cash for the ring, I have a great story and made someone happy to get their property back. Those things are honestly worth a lot more to me.

    With a little help, you did a good deed and built a load of karma!! Your next gold will be better,
    AND you'll get to keep it.

    Perhaps Jeff will see fit to move this over to; "HONORABLE MENTION" where it now belongs

    Thanks for being you!!

    time for a new HM member -- you did the right thing * frankly I'm really surprized you were able to find winston with so little to go on -- thankfully elsie is also a very odd name as well so the combanation of the two odd names really helped in solving this one -- lucky for you it wasn't " from mary to john "

    Re: I need your help finding people. UPDATED with PICs:

    Got a nice message from Winston on Facebook...

    That is still just unbelievable. I am blown away that you put forth such an effort to find us. Although I am a glass half full person, this is one of those moments that confirms my belief that the world is basically full of good people. This is an act of selflessness that i will never forget. Talk to you soon. Wow. Winston


    Great guy.

    Great guy.
    And THAT thank you note is worth more than any possible monetary reward!!
    And deep lifelong friendships have started on less.

    Re: I need your help finding people. UPDATED with PICs:

    Just realized I didnt upload these final pics.
    The last moments for me to have and hold the ring... Its kinda funny because I remember so clearly the first moment I saw the ring and held it. Of course, I was ecstatic to have found gold. Boxing it up and looking at it for the last time, I felt not only happy it was leaving for home but also kinda sad to see it go and the story to end.
    I hope the ring will be treasured as a memory and not just scrapped. Either way, its out of my hands.

    The last sight of the ring for me...
    Since Winston asked me to send it to Elise, I wrote her a little note.




    Goodbye little ring.

    Re: I need your help finding people. UPDATED with PICs:

    That was a stand up thing to do by Winston and have you send the ring to his ex since she asked for it back.

    Deathhare, Job well done.
