"My husband, Don and I, are a blended family with four sons between us. The fire started in Santa Paula, about 10 miles from our house, and moved to about a mile of our home within two hours. I could see it from my deck, at 10 pm. We left immediately, assuming that all our paperwork and jewelry (including my wedding ring), was in the fire safe. We lost our home... My wedding ring was so special to me because Don bought it for me, in 1989, when we had nothing. We returned to our home to search for it, but I left—I was a little overwhelmed with seeing some of the rubble of my life… along with horrible air quality. Don continued searching and found the ring (along with Grandma’s teacup, too) in a ‘fire-proof’ safe—which actually had become an oven to our belongings inside! When I returned, Don popped down on one knee, re-proposing; as our 5th son, Corey photographed us."
