I've been wondering for hours what disturbed me about this thread, and it just hit me...........
When my husband passed, I took his wedding band off his finger and put it on mine........yes, its a little loose, but the band underneath holds it well.
Trust me........I'd lose my life before I let someone take it from me. Thats how much it means to me now.
The thought that losing a mechanical device is more important than losing a wedding ring is just sad to me.
More than just a symbol, its representative of the committment and love I held for him.
