A $5.7 million wedding band was among a number of items donated to a Houston man’s $10.4 million funeral.
The man, Daith “Daith” Smith, was a father of two children and a grandfather, who lived in the Houston area.
Daith died in May at a Houston hospital after suffering from a heart attack.
He had been hospitalized for about a year.
Smith, who was an Army veteran, was in a wheelchair and wearing a metal bracelet.
The bracelets included a heart symbol that had been made for him by his family.
The ring, made by Smith’s wife, Elizabeth, was donated to the Houston Humane Society.
It was presented Friday in Houston to a man named Steve who had recently been diagnosed with cancer.
Steve, who lives in Texas, is now in hospice care and has a large funeral to attend.
He asked The Washington Report for a story and asked for a photo.
He was thrilled when the Washington Post asked him to share the story with us.
Steve, who said he was in his 60s, is a retired teacher who has been in the military for nearly 50 years.
Steve told us the rings are a gift from Daith’s wife and were meant to be worn by a family member to the funeral.
He said he didn’t know what the ring would look like and had no idea it would be given to a veteran.
Steve said the ring is an honor to wear.
It is engraved with his name and number and inscribed with a small heart symbol.
Steve explained that his family and friends had asked him not to wear the ring for his funeral because of its price tag.
Steve’s mother, Barbara, also died from cancer last year.
She had a heart transplant that was unsuccessful.
The band was designed by the Smiths and has been given to the family of the man who lost his life.
Steve told us his brother’s son had told him that if he were to receive a ring from his father, he would wear it and never wear it again.
Steve was also told by his father that he had a few other rings on his wedding night and was planning to gift one to his wife.
Steve’s father, who is a lawyer, said that Steve has been a big supporter of the Houston city’s homeless and was deeply saddened to learn that Daith had died.
He said that his son had been a hard worker who had been on disability since he was a child.
Steve said he would be in touch with Daith to arrange a memorial service.
The Smiths were not aware that Digh had been in hospices, but they did find out through the Houston humane society.
Steve says his son told them that Daid’s condition worsened after he was given the heart transplant in 2010.
Steve described Daith as a “true gentleman” who was always happy to help.
He also said that the ring was a great addition to the gift that was given to Steve.
He also said he is grateful that the memorial service was held in the city.
Steve also told us that the Smith family has been overwhelmed by the outpouring of support that has come from around the world.
