Rachel Bradshaw is celebrating the memory of her late husband with something she can always keep close to her.

Former Tennessee Titans kicker Rob Bironas died on Sept. 20 when he lost control of his 2009 Yukon Denali and crashed. Toxicology reports indicated his blood alcohol level was 0.218%. He died from blunt force trauma at the scene.

Bradshaw -- who is a rising country singer -- first honored his memory in November with a tattoo on her wrist that reads, "Warrior." She posted to Facebook, "Two years ago today I met the most amazing man in the world. I married him and lost him shortly after… Please Tell your loved ones how much you love them every single day. Don’t hold grudges. Be kind. Love unconditionally. That’s what Rob stood for. He was a warrior.. And forever will be."

Now she has come up with a unique way to keep her wedding ring as a special symbol of their love. On Wednesday (Dec. 3) she posted the photo above, writing, "I decided to turn my wedding ring into a beautiful necklace that I could wear forever in honor of my late husband... It was a very emotional moment when I picked it up but I am so proud I did it."

Another post in early November indicated Bradshaw is working with a new band on some new music.
