On May 4, 2021, I received a phone call from a gentleman named Diego. Diego explained to me that his wife had lost her wedding ring and asked if I could help. Of course I said yes. I met up with Diego and his wife and had them both reenact the event leading up to the ring being lost. Diego explained to me that ha had taken his wife’s ring into the kitchen and washed it off, put it in a paper towel and set it on the table on the back patio. Diego then stated that his wife doesn’t remember the ring sitting on the table. Diego said that before I had arrived they searched the area surrounding the table with no luck. I focused on a comment that Diego had made about the paper towel. Diego stated that he had thrown the paper towel in the fire pit with some other trash and burned the trash that morning before I arrived. With all the information in hand I searched the patio area, the kitchen, living room, bedroom. Pretty much the entire house as well as the vehicle that was used after ring was lost. I had no luck in any of the places I had searched throughout the house. I remembered Diego mentioning that he had thrown the paper towel in the fire pit. I asked Diego to lead me to the fire pit. Diego grabbed a shovel and we both started sifting through the burnt trash scoop by scoop. On the third scoop we both saw something shiny that didn’t fit in with the rest of the trash. Diego reached down and picked up the shiny object. Guess what it was! Yep the missing wedding ring! It was a little tarnished but it was still beautiful and intact. Diego and his wife were so relieved that we had found the ring. We all shared some hugs and a few tears of joy knowing that the mission had been accomplished.
I was also given an invitation to search an old property that they own in the future. According to legend the previous owner didn’t trust banks so he hid his money on the property. Diego invited me to help look for the so called caches that could be hidden on the property according to the family that previously owned the property. Looking forward to what I might find.
See you at the next smile!
