I did have an moment similar to yours. It was not wedding rings (and by the way, I am so sorry you lost your wedding rings, that would be really hard for me). A couple of months ago, we accidentally left the window open in our car overnight. We live in North Dakota and this would usually not be a big deal, but on this particular night, someone decided to take advantage of that and stole a DVD player from our car.
I felt the same way you feel (invaded, I guess is a good word). To know that some one was in the car and had taken apart the seat to get the DVD player off really bothered me. I had to come to the conclusion that it really is only stuff. I have since simplified a lot.
Anyway, it is nothing like your rings, but it sort of made me realize similar things. It is like my mom always says, "You can't take it with you when you die anyway." I guess she is right. Definitely doesn't make it easier though.
