“I noticed my 40th anniversary ring my husband had recently given me was no longer on my finger.”
“I had waited for my grandkids outside Ridge View Elementary that afternoon and I thought the ring must have slipped off onto the playground. Immediately I and some family members headed to the school with flashlights and searched all over the playground but couldn’t find it. I reported the ring as missing to the police and checked in at pawn shops but it didn’t turn up. I was heartsick about losing the ring but then, several weeks later, the school contacted me. A second-grader named Irelynn had found the ring on the playground and thought it was just a toy until her parents saw it and suggested she turn it in to the office. I was overjoyed. She may not know it now but I hope she eventually realizes how much this meant to me. And I hope the rest of our community realizes that there are good people like Irelynn out there.” – Laurie A., Kennewick.
