An ad in the LA Times Pictured a jewelry store in Beverly Hills Somewhere off Wilshire A golden band modeled after an Egyptian original Mother wanted it and so we went We sat on tuffets of crushed velvet and She bought it replacing her wedding band Which I never did find. It was pretty but what other significance this meant regarding her husband she did not tell
She was struck walking on an off-ramp on the 10. Heading east? How did she get there? I asked her in the hospital On the gurney she shook her head And said she didn’t know. That’s Alzheimer’s for you. The ring is gone.
Father took his off well before she passed and left it on the top of his dresser.
