Kendrick says that she found the ring while clearing around the base of an apple tree in their yard, and told Good News Network that she was “very excited” to find the ring, and that her husband would have been just “as surprised as her.”

She said, “It didn’t look at all like a wedding ring, it looked like a dirty piece of bent metal. I looked at it and thought ‘no, it couldn’t be’. I was really quite excited. When I was telling a friend about it I got a bit choked up.”

Kendrick says she will get the ring repaired and she’ll wear it as a necklace in memory of her late husband.
