Congratulations Matt Venable!
Matt accomplished Good Samaritan Act
Sussex County Landfill and Recycling Center
Details of the Recognition
After the landfill closed on Wednesday, employees Matt Venable and Jason Williams helped search through numerous trash bags. Luckily Ashby had placed the rings in a bright yellow Dollar General bag, which made it slightly easier to locate.
"At about four o'clock he [Venable] called," Ashby said. "I yelled, 'What, are you kidding me!' And he said 'I'm on the way with your rings.'"
Ashby says she hugged Venable and wrote thank you notes to every employee who helped search the landfill for her rings.
While she says the rings are merely possessions, Ashby believes they're also symbols of her family and the love she and her husband shared for 56 years.
