For today’s Show Me… Project subject, Robert wants us to show him an object or objects that have sentimental value.
These are my engagement ring, my wedding band… and my father-in-law’s wedding band. (His band is at the upper left.) My husband’s parents married in 1947. My father-in-law wore the ring until he died in 1993, after which my mother-in-law wore it. Three weeks before she died, she took it off her finger and gave it to my husband. We’d been married less than three months.
Ed wanted to wear the wedding band I’d put on his finger on our wedding day. The ring wouldn’t fit on another of his fingers. So I suggested that I wear it. His mom loved the idea.
As my mother-in-law did, I wear the ring on the same finger on which I wear my wedding band and engagement ring. Each time I look at it, I’m reminded of the wonderful example of marriage my in-laws gave to my husband.
