There is a desperate search by a Winnipeg man to find his late wife’s wedding rings.
They were taken from Josh Dusk Koslowsky’s van in the Elmwood area last week.
Koslowsky’s wife Ginger died last month at the age of 33. He tells 680 CJOB the wedding band and the engagement ring are irreplaceable.
“After she passed away, I took the rings off of her finger because I didn’t want her to be buried with them. I told her while she was still with us that I would look after them and do something special with them.
To keep track of the rings, Koslowsky originally wore them on his pinky finger.
“They started to get pretty tight on my finger so while I was driving home from the hospice after she passed away, I put them in the cupholder of our van and accidentally left them in there.”
Koslowsky woke up Friday morning to find his van ransacked and the rings gone along with some other valuables.
He has made posters to go in pawn shops in case the thief attempts to sell the rings.
Koslowsky says he’s not looking to press charges. All he wants is for the thief will return them to their rightful owner so he can honour his late wife and pass the rings down to their three kids.
