I was looking on Craigslist in August 2012 and came across a posting that said, " Lost gold ringat the Historic Deepwoods Estate in Salem Oregon at the Jazzy wine and food festival." Please call if you have found the ring. I called and offered our help to try and fined her ring. At that time she said didn't our help and so I forgot about lost ring. Then in November I get a call from a lady named Nancy that said do you remember me I lost my ring at the Deepwoods Estatesin Salem. I said sorry no but after talking to her I realized I had talked to her in August about a lost ring on craigslist. So we met Nancy at the Deepwoods Estates parking lot and stated looking for her ring. About a hour later as everything was looking maybe for the worst and BAM! there was the sound you want to hear it was the ring and it was cookie cut into the ground about a inch deep. All is well now as the pictures show Nancy was a happy the ring was found. The ring was given to her by late husband and daughter she is happy now
