My dad passed away on the weekend. We had a memorial service for him in his favourite place in the world (his backyard) last night. During the service my silver bracelet (that he bought for me while we in Mexico two years ago) fell off. I have searched everywhere and can't find it. Wondering if a metal detector could detect it?
If so, does anyone know where I could rent one in the Peterborough/lindsay area?

Thank you

First off I am very sorry for the loss of your Dad. :grouphug:

I have been googling and the best I came up with so far is:

Metal Detection Services
R.R. 4
1719 6th Line
Peterborough, Ontario K9J 6X5
Telephone: (705)652-0044
Fax: (705)652-6556
Internet: Pending
Email: sherlockjj@sympatico.ca
Contact: Joe Olajos

I am not sure really what this person does, but I would imagine he would at leadt have a better idea of whether you could rent one in the area. Some pixiedust: for you.

I'm so sorry to hear about your dad. And I hope you find the bracelet.

If renting a metal detector is not possible or not timely, the Source (formerly Radio Shack) has metal detectors that you can purchase (prices range all over the place). Perhaps you could give one of them a try if the metal detector company doesn't work out.

Good luck.

Thank you for the kind words everyone.

My mom found the bracelet a few minutes ago. It was hanging in her dining room curtains. I could just cry, I am so relieved. DD was in the backyard and had gotten stuck on the swingset (she has poor gross motor planning skills). She was yelling for help and I had gone through these curtains and out the back patio door to help her out. The patio door is old and sticks and is covered with gauzy curtains. While opening the door, the bracelet must have gotten hung up in the curtains.

I know its strange but I just feel so much better now since the bracelet has been found. It won't bring dad (we called him poppa) back, but the bracelet and the whole holiday to Mexico meant so much to him and I. He had cancer during the vacation but we were so optimistic about it back then (Sept 2003).

I was with poppa when he passed away last weekend and he is now at peace. He suffered from prostrate, then bone and then brain cancer and endured so much pain in the last couple of years.

He is at peace now, and we are all going to be ok here.

Thanks again for all the kind words.

This may sound odd to may of you, but DIS is like my second family. :grouphug:

We are so glad you found it! My thoughts are with you. My brother passed at Christmas and I couldn't imagine lossing the necklace My DSIL gave me after he passed. Keep signed on to the DIS it helped me just to have something to do when DD's went to bed and DH and I would just read the boards together. It took our minds away from always missing him.

So happy that you found your bracelet...and in a place where you wouldn't expect to look :confused3 ...I hope you get the clasp tightened/fixed...it would be so sad if you lost it again

Thanks for the tip. I hope that this doesn't sound too morbid or bother anyone, but for now I have put the bracelet on his urn.
Maybe someday I will be ready to have it repaired and wear it again, but for now I want it to be close to him.

Thanks again for all the kind words. Each day gets easier.
