Dear White's,

THE GOOD DEED--Well I must say that when I found the 2nd Masonic ring at one location I began to think it was too much of a coincidence, then when I found the 1949 class ring I began to believe that I had found stolen items so when I found an allergy alert necklace with a women's name on it. (Initials E.S.) I had to track down the women.

The initials on the class ring are A.V.S. An internet search gave me a phone # a name and address so I called them and made arrangements to meet on Dec 3rd. As it turns out he is 82 and alive and well. Their home had been burglarized in 1997. They never dreamed they would see these rings again, they were very happy to get the rings back. One of the Masons rings was his and one had belonged to his uncle, and was given to him by his father. He also told me that there are two more Masonic rings missing plus a couple more gold rings.

THE PUNISHMENT--- Anyway I told them that I would keep looking and return any more that I find. So I left Their home and went directly to the spot and began detecting, got a good signal and when I knelt down to dig I felt and heard my right knee pop, now I'm out of work until about March 15th. Still my wife and I are very happy to have returned the items it made their day. Edith told us that Albert had never gotten over the loss of the rings. Although this was financial catastrophe, and totally killed my chances to upgrade to the DFX this year my wife and I agree that if we could see the future we would still have done it the same way.
