My Treasure – Shelby Green
"The Family Ring"
‘My husband’s Grandmother and Grandfather met at university. His Grandfather had this car, a Model T Ford that he really loved. He called it Aloysius. He fell in love with this lady. He was from Texas, she was from Tennessee. He sold the car and bought this ring. He went up to Tennessee and proposed to her and she accepted.
Chai and I also met at the same university. He asked me to marry him and gave me this same ring. This time he was from Tennessee and I was from Texas’.
