Letters: Honesty truly appreciated

Return of lost wedding ring means a lot to husband of 50 years

On December 20 my wife and I were volunteers with the Christmas Bureau/Food Bank.

During the hectic pace of filling hampers my wedding ring came off and was not noticed until after our shift.  We returned to the community hall to search, advised a member of the Christmas Bureau and the word spread.  We could not find it, nor could the others who were informed and went back to search.

By the Grace of God, the spirit of the season, and the honesty of a Sooke citizen, the ring was found in a hamper and returned.

My most heartfelt thanks go to that honest citizen. The ring represents 50 years with the same lady, and the loss was devastating. It is not the value that was gone, but the symbolism.

Thank you, and God bless you. You have truly made this Christmas a happy one.
