    Gold ring found and returned!!!

    Hello all - been a while since I've been on. Bought a house a month and a half ago and been extremely busy.
    Anyway, a guy from my church (Bill) overheard a conversation about metal detecting and asked me to come over and help him find a ring he lost over 3 years ago. The Gold ring with diamond was given to him by his late wife who, unfortunately, passed away in his arms, Needless to say, this ring meant a tremendous amount to him. Bill told me that he had found a rock on his deck and went to give it a throw and his ring came off as well and was never recovered. Took me about an hour to find it buried about a 1/2 inch under a lilac bush. The tears that came to this 80 year old Korean War Vets face were priceless!! So happy that this hobby can bring happiess to others as well. Good luck out there!!
    Brent

    Well done Brent. I had the priviledge of returning a VFW ring to a Korean War Vet last year. A very rewarding feeling!

    Very touching story Brent and good thinking looking under the lilac bush. I also hope that I can one day return a piece of something lost.
