When Edith’s husband, John, passed away 11 years ago, she vowed to always keep a little piece of him with her. She decided to wear his gold wedding ring everywhere she went.
When she took a bus trip to Plain & Fancy, an Amish restaurant and farm in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, she never expected to leave the vehicle without it.
Hidden within the purple seats of an Executive Coach bus was John’s wedding ring. Senior bus driver, Greg Davison, was doing some deep cleaning and plucked the beloved piece of jewelry from within. The ring had initials engraved inside as well as the date: June 114, 1952.
Stu Metzler handled the lost and found for Executive Coach and once he took a look at the ring, he started looking at marriage licenses records from that exact day. He also checked in with a jewelry store and alerted WGAL News, who released a story on the wedding ring. Despite Stu’s heavy searching, he had no luck in finding the ring’s owner.
In the video below, posted on February 13, 2017, Stu explains, “I wouldn’t say I had given up, but there was literally no place else for us to look.”
Just when he had hit a roadblock, Stu learned that an 88-year-old woman named Edith had called Executive Coach, claimed to have lost a ring right before Christmas. Then,Edith learned that the bus company had already located her ring, took it in, and did their best to track her down.
As seen in the video, a very grateful Edith arrives to retrieve her ring and give thanks for everything the Executive Coach employees did for her.
The sweet widow smiles after putting John’s ring on her finger and says, “It feels like I’m married again. It’s a good feeling!”
