    Shelie Bravo Williams donated a ring belonging to her late husband to the Salvation Army to honor his memory.

    A West Texas widow who anonymously donated her late husband's ring at a Salvation Army red kettle has come forward and the ring has been returned to her.

    The Salvation Army began looking for her after she dropped the ring along with a note in the kettle Monday. A man who was moved by her action offered a replacement donation if the ring appraised at $250 could be returned to her.

    Shelie Bravo Williams, who identified herself Thursday, told the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal that she gave the ring a kiss when she dropped it in the kettle, thinking she would never see it again.

    Williams says her late husband died of cancer in 2006. She finds a way each Christmas season to pay tribute to his memory.
