    Great topic & story. a well earned Honorable Mention. It realy does take a special person to return a ring that has a precious metal in it now a days. Kudos to you. Your rewards will be great in returns of silver & gold.... Happy Hunting

    Melissa: A heartwarming story indeed. I know you returned the ring because you have a good and kind heart, but I hope your generosity is rewarded with many more wonderful and valuable finds. You must surely be a blessing to your family and friends.

    Hi everyone!! I've only a few minutes left of my lunch break. I will respond to everyone's comments tonight. I just wanted to share something with you. I went out to my car last night to get something and I found an envelop on my windshield. It was a thank you card from Keith and he had put a gift card to a local restaurant in it. I sure wasn't expecting that. He is such a great guy. I'm so glad it was his ring I found if that makes any sense.Lol. He deserves to have good things happen to him. Thanks to you all.

    Many thanks to you all for the warm words. You make Treasure net feel like a family. And not the dysfunctional kind. ;-)

    It is very hard to put into words what it feels like to give some thing back that was lost years ago.
    It is a Big Rush to say the Least.
    Congratulations on a job Well Done.

    Thank you Kevin. Yes, it is a rush for sure. I got more pleasure out of giving it back than I ever could have by keeping it.

Now adays, I answer....its the items that I can return to its owner. They just look at me funny. Until you have done it, you dont know how NEAT of a feeling that is.

    My hat off to you for giving it back. Im sure some would have just melted it.

    Thank you VW! I hope I can do this for many more people in the years I have left. I got to talk to Keith's wife last night and she's just as nice as he is. Have a good one!
