JASPER COUNTY —
Then the good Samaritans got to work.
Fear said Cassidy Strohl found the engagement ring on the side of the road. A few minutes later, Tyler Probst found the wedding band and all was well again. Others in the group were Cody Ruholl, Dylan Probst, Melissa Koester and Clayton Apke.
Fear said she was impressed with the maturity level of her good Samaritans.
"They were all so extremely polite and nice," she said. "They were a Godsend."
Koester said her group was just driving along when they saw Fear in the roadway.
"After we talked to her, we knew she wanted to find those rings really bad," Koester said. "I think we just did what we were taught to do when we were little.
"When somebody needs help, you help them."
Dylan Probst said the group was concerned there might be something seriously wrong.
"We didn't know if it was something like a flat tire, or somebody having a heart attack," Dylan said.
Dylan said the group was thrilled to help Fear find her rings. He added they were even more excited when she told the story behind the rings.
"When she told the story about her mother, it made us feel even better," he said.
Now that Fear has her rings back, she plans to change her driving habits.
"No more hands out of the window until I get these rings sized," she said.
