Firemen Search Rubble To Find Wedding Ring

In a show of  true devotion to their fallen brother and his wife, firefighters who worked with Lt. Edward Walsh dug through the rubble and ashes in the building where he died to find his wedding ring.

The ring was not on Walsh's hand when his body, along with that of fellow firefighter Michael Kennedy, was removed from the building.

Kristen Walsh, his wife, called the Boylston Street firehouse to ask those who worked with Walsh to try to find it.

A top-to-bottom search of the firehouse found nothing, leading his brother firefighters to believe it had to have been lost in the fire.

After hours of searching through the debris, the ring was found by Patty Kenneally Donovan, the first woman appointed to the Boston Fire Department, and returned to Kristen Walsh on the eve of her husband's funeral.
