    Thank you xoxo....

    Tomorrow, I will be going to a jeweler to design a new ring from our 2 wedding rings, plus an amethyst I had gotten years ago, plus maybe a few more small amethysts and/or diamonds. I am looking forward to being able to wear both of our rings as one, to always remind me of him forever..

    I really do have to go back to work, and instead of Progday, will plan a trip to (probably) Ireland, or (possibly) Italy around Octoberish.. Gotta get a new passport, since mine has expired.. I know, I'd like to see all of you, too.. Need tons of hugs, and know I'd get 'em at Progday! But.. I also think that taking a trip alone will be very healing for me... Never know what will happen next year, though. xoxo

    My Mom did that after my Dad passed away. Everytime I see my Mom wearing that ring I think of my Dad. I think it's a beautiful thing to do.

    Thank you! Our 2 rings will be visible, as though they are both on my finger, one stacked on top of the other but fused into one ring. (his ring will be sized to my finger size). Then, my 4 carat pear-shaped amethyst will be on top, with a row of diamonds along the side of the stone..

    That sounds really cool. Very creative idea, Cyndee.

    Thank you so much for checking on me. Things are totally different, of course, but the worst is behind me. I just couldn't take watching him suffer, and wither away in front of me. Very painful memories... I am trying to focus on the time we had before he got sick, and also keeping very busy.. Looking forward to getting my new ring soon--made from the fusion of our wedding rings...

    Hmm. Fusion. Then there's the amethyst (aka Rock). And, the whole idea you have going here is definitely Progressive. Now you have a cool idea that's even cooler!

    Cyndee - please be sure to post pics of your new jewelry when it's finished. I'm sure many here would love to see it.

    Here's the ring I got made from our wedding rings. I had his ring sized down to fit me, then added the amethyst I had for years, and got some diamonds added, too.. It sparkles much more in real life than this pic shows..

    Thanks for posting the photo. We can only capture a glimpse of it's intangible meaning, but the picture reveals a lovely ring Cyndee. We can all add sparkles to the diamonds from our end.

    Wow. That's really nice. They did a great job with it. Looks really cool with the two bands.
