Her name is Rosie and she is placed on my right hand, ring finger. She is a sterling silver,

heart shaped diamond ring. She is a size 7 and is from Kay Jewelers. There are little diamonds

but still managed to get a couple of scratches on her. Everywhere I am, Rosie is. I guess it is true

look. I also placed it there due to the belief that the left ring finger has a vein connected to the

surroundings. I want to ensure that I am making the best example for not only myself but my

future family as well as my father.

present within their child’s life. I feel that that my father has played a major role within my life

which has impacted the way in which I carry myself. I commend my father for being the
