Saint Petersburg, FL
I received the cross at a women’s retreat led by Jeanne Haemmalmann with women from Passagrille Community church. My spouse and I have recently taken in one of my grandchildren, a lovely 16 year old now. I was touched by the beautiful tree under the word “family.” The tree had no roots, but still looked strong and fruitful. It reminded me of the way we are starting with a family tree and trying to grow roots instead of branches.
