Crowley built the house as a wedding gift for his late wife Mary when they got married. "It must have slipped off when I took off my gloves," said Crowley, adding that it was already dark outside. He was beside himself and the first thing he did was call his daughter Deidre Miguel.
Miguel, a nurse, said she could tell her father was upset. She immediately wanted to help find the missing ring.
"My mother passed away six years ago," said Miguel, "and that made it even harder. If she was still around, she would just say 'Don't worry about it!' but that ring is their bond right now."
