    • The story of Robert and Lucy:
      When Robert met Lucy in Toronto he fell fast and he fell hard, so much so that he quickly proposed. This was not done in these days. A girls father was meant to be approached by the suitor first and he was to ask for her hand in marriage. Realizing his mistake Robert wrote a letter to Lucy's father explaining himself. I have this letter. He hastily bought a ring but he designed and created the wedding ring himself as a custom piece.
