(CHRISTIANPOST) — The woman who donated a gold ring to The Salvation Army as a way to honor her former husband on the anniversary of his death has been identified, but says she never intended to receive any attention for her generosity.

On Monday evening the red kettles used by The Salvation Army of Lubbock, Texas, to collect donations were gathered together so the money could be sorted and prepared to be deposited in the bank. Mixed in with the money, however, was a ring attached to a note.

A woman wrote the note to explain that she was donating the ring in honor of her husband, who had passed away seven years ago to the day.

“He was my Angel and I know he continues to watch over me and his family,” the note said, in part. “He had a giving heart and would want to help however he could. This was his ring, It’s [sic] not much but I hope it helps.”
