Wedding Ring Band Survives 1900 Storm 119 Years Later

Galveston Storm of 1900: September 8, 1900

Bernardoni Family Wedding Ring Survives Biblical Hurricane

“One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them.” Gandalf

By a monumental miracle, the wedding band of my great grandfather – Giovanni Carlo Bernardoni – survived the Storm of 1900. Sadly, Giovanni perished. It has been passed down through the generations. This October 19, 2019, my son’s fiance will place the ring on his ring finger when they are married in Austin. Rocco is the 5th Bernardoni. The circle is unbroken. God Bless Giovanni and Lucile!
