Cross #13.904

 Sr. Mary Ann 
 Toledo, OH

My cross was a gift from a dear friend who attended the National Catholic Educators Conference in Houston, TX in April, 2013.  I was supposed to attend with her.  However, I was lined up to be a living kidney donor for my nephew and his surgery needed to be scheduled sooner than anticipated.  While I was disappointed to miss the trip, I have been so blessed to be able to give this gift to my nephew.  We are both recovering well and growing stronger each day.  My friend brought me this cross as a gift of continued friendship and healing.
