Facebook post helps find lost wedding ring

Associated Press

RICHMOND – An eastern Indiana man who spent months heartbroken after losing his late wife's wedding ring while out shopping has been reunited with the gold band thanks to a posting on social media.

Charles McNally was shopping in September when the wedding ring his wife of 56 years, Barbara, had worn until her death in April 2018 slipped off his finger.

The Richmond man and his family searched repeatedly but to no avail for the missing ring at the stores he'd visited that day.

“I said, 'Oh no Lord, please not that,” McNally McNally told the (Richmond) Palladium-Item.

His daughter, Angela McNally, posted a message on Facebook asking for help finding the band, which is engraved on the inside with, “Because I love you.”

Richmond resident Destry Glover had found the ring in the self-checkout lanes of a Walmart.

She saw the Facebook posting and sent Angela McNalley a message about the ring. But Angela didn't see that message for four months because it ended up in a Facebook message request feature she didn't know existed. She finally stumbled onto Glover's message a week ago while poking around her Facebook page.

Glover returned the ring to Charles McNally on Monday during a meeting in a restaurant's parking lot. Although he offered Glover a $100 reward for the ring, she declined the money.

“You don't find very many people like that anymore,” he said.
