Letter to the editor: Touched heart

By Susan Hyde


In my 13 years as a police officer, I have had the duty of witnessing many disturbing things. Of which by the grace of God has brought me through. On the other hand I have had the honor of being a part of many rewarding situations. Any one of us officers could tell many a tale of near misses, and life saving experiences. But I want to relay a recent story that has touched my heart.

A local resident had the great misfortune of losing the stone from her wedding ring. There were three locations she visited before she realized the stone was missing. Albertson's was her first stop, they were so kind as to pull the frozen turkeys from the bin and look. The liquor store, and Jr. High also pulled their resources in the search. The pawn shops were contacted as well as Lewis Jewelry. Nothing had been turned into them.

The victim in this case ran an ad hoping someone had picked up the stone. Over a week went by with no response. I truly had given up hope that it would be found, let alone by someone honest. Then one night I received a call at my home from a Mrs. Christensen. She said her husband found the stone in the Albertson's parking lot. Not knowing if the stone was real she took it to the jewelry store. They believed it was the setting I had inquired about. More calls were made and low and behold the stone was returned to a very grateful lady.

It's a blessing to witness first hand the compassion of people. So much focus, mine included, goes towards the crime and wrong doings. But to all those, who without giving a second thought choose to do the right thing, thank you, and God Bless you.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
