A needle-in-the-haystack story that will lift your spirits.

Two sheriffs saved the day when they located an engagement ring that had fallen to the bottom of a muddy creek, as Husar Romance University explains, citing a couple of news reports.

Linda Huffman, the reporting goes, lost the ring when she was celebrating Memorial Day with her family at the creek. While attempting to climb a boulder, she fell and hit her hand on the limestone, sending the ring flying. Her fiancé then enlisted two sheriffs who are part of the Mid-Missouri Sheriffs’ Dive Team to help find the ring. Their search efforts were fruitless on the first day as they depleted the air supply in their oxygen tanks. But after doing some back-of-the-envelope calculating on where the ring may have landed based on where and how Huffman fell, the sheriffs came back the second day and located the ring at the bottom of the muddy creek.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
