This is a perfect example of how one processes grief. For your dad, it was praying the Rosary. (kind of like a remembrance to your mom) I'm sure he felt very close to her when praying the Rosary. His keeping the wedding band on was just another bond between them that couldn't be broken. (even in death) His children were also a bond, or connection to your beloved mother. Sounds like he was a very blessed and loved man.
P.S. I bet your mom and dad are now praying the Rosary together again. I would also bet that they include their wonderful children in that Rosary. They are now resting in Our Lords arms and looking down on their family and saying....we did good!!!!
God bless you and yours, Jerry.
Your comments made me cry...not in a bad way. I mis-carried a baby a year before Andrew was born. I suspect Andrew has met his sibling I never met now. It is bittersweet thinking about that tonight.....
