Most treasured possession: My engagement/wedding ring. My parents gifted us the diamond from the ring my father gave my mother in 1973. Mom pulled it off her hand and said, “You shouldn’t have to wait until I’m dead to have this!” We had a one-of-a-kind ring made with it.
My motto for life: Everyone should plant a tree they’ll never sit under.
