The group searched for hours, and just before dusk Tuesday, one of the firefighters found the ring. The Globe reported that the firefighters formed a convoy and rushed the ring to Walsh's wake at a nearby church. The widow was seated a few feet from her husband's casket when she was handed the ring.

The Boston Globe reported, "Kristen Walsh took the ring and slid it on her finger. It was big, real big, but it fit in all the ways that matter."

That is a nice story.

My husband is a FF, and they are told not to wear their wedding ring to work. It’s because it may get contaminated by hazardous materials.

So when we got married I got him a bling ring with diamonds, and I got him a very simple plain gold band. He wears the plain one when he’s on duty.

He just won’t leave the house without a wedding band on.
