Rhonda Thill is taking each day at a time, after her husband of 18 years, Randy Thill, was killed last month in a motorcycle crash. But it’s the unlikely support from a group of bikers that is helping her cope.
In the days following Randy’s death, she realized his wedding ring was missing when she went to the funeral home. She knew he was wearing the ring and set out to try and find it.
She told a close friend, an avid biker, about her mission. Before long, word quickly spread among the tight-knit biker group, and, suddenly, people she didn’t even know were banning together to find the ring.
The group of bikers went to the crash scene and were on their hands and knees hoping to find the priceless wedding ring. After 45 minutes, one of them spotted the gold ring. They saw it matched her description, hopped on their motorcycles and delivered the ring to the widow.
“It was probably the first time since Randy’s death I had an actual smile on my face, after I stopped crying, because I was so happy about it,” Rhonda told KARE11 News.
“The group of people that worked to get the ring for me, they’re bikers. And a lot of the times they get a bad rap. [But they] have the biggest hearts in the world,” she said. “They are the first ones to step up and lend a hand when it’s needed.”
