"Thank you so much"

I was thrilled when I saw that Angel was back. My boyfriend lost his ring in the surf and was devastated because he really loved it. I tried for months to replace it but Angel was no longer there due to COVID-19. I tried again in November and was absolutely thrilled to see Angel back and the ring was there in my boyfriends size. I had it for Christmas and to say he was happy is an understatement. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Angel for putting a huge smile on my boyfriends face.
