Man reunited with lost wedding band 5 years later

Man Reunited With Lost Wedding Band 5 Years Later

VAIL, Colo. -- A man has come forward saying that he is the owner of a wedding ring found under a chairlift at Vail Resort.

KDVR reports: The ring was found under the Sourdough Lift by a worker. It had an inscription -- "All my love, Sue" -- and a date.

Vail Resorts tweeted a photo of the ring in the hopes of finding its owner. The tweet reached over 1 million people.

It took five days, now the resort says a man, David Brenner, has come forward saying the ring belongs to him.

Brenner said he lost the ring five years ago.

I think what is more amazing is that he was still married to the same woman 5 years later. Now that is the real story...

Lol... I don't ski but I do make sourdough bread... and until I watched the video I wondered what a "sourdough lift" was. Happy to read a story with a happy ending.

You know, these non-stories are getting more and more old. Aol has become the minutia news channel.

I could be included as a luck in a million too.
I lost my weddind ring an Oval 2 and 1/2 carat... all 3 c's . my husband had designed for me.
I lost it in a restroom in the Mall...
Never thought I would find it exactly a month later at my jeweller who appraises my jewelry. who knew it the moment he saw it. A lady came to sell it to him for $500.00..
Now thats true love.

"Vail Resorts tweeted a photo of the ring in the hopes of finding its owner. The tweet reached over 1 million people."

If the video was watched, some of the below questions were answered. He lost it because he was working while on vacation and had to talk on his cell phone while on a chair lift. He removed his glove to use the phone while on the lift. He didn't know when or where he lost it, as he didn't realize it was lost until he got back to the lodge. The video also explains that he didn't see the tweet, but a friend who also had a wife named Sue did, and asked him if he ever lost a wedding ring while skiing. He said as a matter of fact I did, then asked his wife where it was, she said Vail, and then the realized it was his ring.
