June 1st, 2014

As I was searching through Craigslist.org I found this ad. This is how it reads lost ring I lost my wedding ring on Wednesday evening 4/16/2014 near Philomath Elementry school. It is white gold with rose gold leaves on the sides with a green oval Jadite stone.

So at the time I thought it was a tire ring (ring gets cought in a tire and down the road it goes and gets lost.) Then it was reposted a month later 5/16/2014 so I got in touch with Tammy and her husband.

I met with Tammy's husband Jake, at the house they were helping at. We search ed all over the ground at the house. About an hour and half later we did find her ring. This was the E-mail I got backfrom them. "Thank you so much for giving your time and gas to come and help us. I am still amazed and dazed that you found the ring. I'm sure Jake told you that was the third try to find the ring. We were going to give up trying to find the ring after that.

Pictured ring and Happy Tammy and Jake.
