SUPERIOR Colo. (KDVR) – For many have suffered loss after the Marshall fire, every day is a challenge.
They tell us the heartaches are too many to mention. But on Monday, we spotted a man determined to find a piece of happiness in the rubble.
In the midst of all the devastation left in Marshall Fire are stories of hope and resilience. Sean Tanner’s quest is one of them.
We see him standing and sifting next to what used to be his home in Superior. It is one of the more than a thousand were consumed by the fire.
“It was a sad adventure. You have to be optimistic but all the hot things you go through. It’s just the unrecognizable stuff in your life,” says Tanner.
Amid the twisted metal and layers of ashes, he is determined to find his wife’s wedding ring.
“To be able to find those rings and reconnect with the life experiences of more than 15 years of marriage. It’s going to be pretty amazing,” said Tanner as he continued the screening.
His screener is made of anything that can strain his memories, turning to rubble. There’s also a magnet scratcher along with a breathing mask he borrowed – all for his wife.
He was focusing on an area where he found metal fragments of a nightstand he believed held the rings on that horrible day.
“We found a charging cable and rails for drawers and the like right outside the house, in this corner,” says Tanner.
He has yet to find those rings and we asked him to please let us know if and when he found those precious rings.
