ok as i sit here i have tears coming down the side of my face i am sooooooooo upset. As some of you know i lost my mom due to suicide in 98,,, i was 18.. anyhoo.. my dad had promised me her wedding rings for my wedding day (over 4 yrs ago),,, i never got them,, when i approached him about them he had made the decision himself that my daughter should get them not me and he should be the one to give it to her.. I explained to him that i felt that i should have them and be able to pass them down when i go.. nevermind the fact that he left my mother a month before she took her own life after 20 yrs of marriage.. anyhoo... my dad and i really werent on speaking terms.. actually last boxing day (2005) he called and we got into it and he told me not to go to his funeral when he died.. well i went to my brothers house (8hrs away) over the holidays.. my dad was there and to my surprise he gave me my moms rings.. i was so ecstatic! I have been wearing them on a chain around my neck.. well i took it off the other day and put it on my dresser. I went to go and get it today and its gone! I have a 6 yr old and a 4 yr old and both say that they didnt touch it.. even tho i am pretty sure one of them did. I am so upset i know that i shouldnt have left them on my dresser.. i dont know what i am gonna do if i cant find them! I can see that i am not gonna be able to sleep tonight and my A/P is gonna get the best of me.. ok sorry just wanted to vent and get that out.. thanks for reading..

boolie,

I wish you luck on finding the rings...I know how the A/P acts up when we are stressed. Take a deep breath and hang in there. Keep us posted.

  I know how hard this must be for you, but you might try playing a game with kids who can find the rings gets a dollar or 2 and I bet one of them will find them for you then sit them down and  tell them how just how much those rings mean to you and they souldn't be playing wih them.

  Hopefully it helps to find them best of luck
