NEW YORK — How to burn ashes of an ancestor on a fire?
That’s what one New York couple is trying to do after their grandmother died at 87 and they needed to use the ashes of her ashes to decorate a wedding ring.
They said the ashes are too big for the ring, and they wanted to make a new one, but the ring could not be made.
The ring is a wedding band made of a piece of old ashes.
It was handmade by a grandmother who died in the 1920s in the Bronx, according to the New York Post.
But the couple said they don’t need to make the ring and it’s just too expensive.
“We wanted to use her ashes for something, to make something,” said Mary G. Scott, a 60-year-old retired schoolteacher from Staten Island who was one of the three women who worked to make this new ring.
“And when we saw the price, we thought, Well, we can’t afford that,” said Scott, who made the ring with her husband and son.
She said they got the ashes from a crematorium in Manhattan and took them to the crematoriums of other Brooklyn residents to prepare for the event.
“It was very beautiful.
It was just wonderful,” Scott said.
“I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything so beautiful.”
The two women who helped make the new ring said they did not want the ring to be a tourist attraction and they hoped to get a bigger ring to sell.
The ring was decorated with colorful floral designs and a portrait of a grandmother with her hands raised in prayer.
The family of the deceased grandmother will receive the ring at the ceremony on Aug. 3, and the ceremony will be broadcast on a local station.
