Aw Mine too Marblecake. Feeling the same as you. And not that anyone would be looking at old me it gives me a sense of security. I do not want to fend off an advance. Just leave me alone.

My wife's would go to her daughter. I hate wearing rings, so I don't have one.

My brother lost his wife in 2009 and he insists that he will never stop wearing the ring. He was firm against re-marrying. Let me add, though, that he was 78 when she passed on, and they were married 52 years. He is physically incredibly healthy and could have re-married, but he knows he could never replace his wife and he wasn't interested in starting over. That ring is probably glued on his hand for good.

I just remembered some thing some one else did with a wide wedding band. There were three daughters. I think it was the Dad's ring. It was cut flattened cut in three pieces then some how a loop was mounted to the narrow end of each piece and the daughters wore their piece as a necklace. I would think the ring had to be large or had a nice design on it on the outside like my first husbands ring does.

I still wear mine and they'll have to pry it off my cold, dead hand. I keep his in my jewelry box.
