LUBBOCK, TX -- An anonymous widow, who lost her husband seven years ago, donated a gold ring to the Lubbock Salvation Army Monday night. The ring was left with a note in a Red Kettle at United Supermarkets on 82nd street and Frankford. The note said:
“In honor of my husband who passed away 7 yrs. ago today. He was my Angel and I know he continues to watch over me and his family. He had a giving heart and would want to help however he could. This was his ring, It’s not much but I hope it helps… Merry Christmas & GOD BLESS.”
The Lubbock Salvation Army said in a written statement, “The ring will soon be appraised to determine a value but the significance of the donation is heartwarming.”
But that’s far from the end of this story. Now, a second anonymous donor has come forward to redeem the value of the ring with a cash donation. The second donor wants to give the ring back to the widow and dedicate the cash donation to the man who died.
The Salvation Army said a quote by the late husband has been withheld from the public so that the first anonymous donor can be identified.
