THE RING HAS BEEN FOUND!!
Overwhelming is officially the understatement of the year.
After a pretty emotional month, we finally have a happy ending to the story.
I honestly cannot thank everyone enough for all of their help. Whether it was sharing out the original missing ring post, going out to the fairgrounds and searching, praying to St. Anthony, or sending positive vibes out my way, every little bit helped this story come together.
I’m amazed at the support from the community.
But alas, the ring has made it’s way home!
On a rainy Sunday, I got a message on Facebook that could brighten anyone’s day. The ring was found. You can hear the story here:

The outpouring of love I’ve received from the story of my missing ring has been absolutely overwhelming, and incredibly heartwarming.
I unfortunately lost a ring that meant a lot to me at the Williamstown Fair last week. The ring bore the engravement “Pooky” on it, which is a nickname given to me by my dad who passed away five years ago, and that I wore as a way to keep him with me every day.
In an effort to find the ring, I posted it up on Facebook and was not expecting it to be shared over 1000 times.
After various messages asking if I had found it, I was not expecting this.
A listener must have caught wind of the story and what he did next was absolutely incredible, and had me choked up on air.
I have never been so touched, or so moved by a gesture like this before.
I can’t read the note out loud without getting emotional over it.
I don’t know this mans name, and I know he didn’t want the recognition, but cannot thank him enough for what he did.
I will certainly be heading down to Pommier to find a little something to carry with me in honour of my dad.
It’s an incredible feeling that someone out there was able to connect on such a personal level to a story that I shared one morning in hope of finding the ring, and incredible to see that there is still good, and generosity, in a world that often focuses on the bad news headlines.
I feel so fortunate to live in a community like this.
Thank you to those who have shared out my story, who have personally gone down to the fairgrounds to look for me, and to this incredible gentleman whom I will always appreciate more than he may know!
