My sister-in-law, Jo from Tampa, brought this cross to me in Houston when my husband passed away unexpectedly just before Thanksgiving last year (2014). Jo has been vigilant in staying in touch with me; and I am so appreciative. She loved her brother so much. Gene and I shared a magical love. Within our 33 years, we tackled life’s hills and valleys together. Of all my treasures, the greatest is our three wonderful children having grown up to be such good people. They lost a dynamic, dedicated Dad. Family, friends and God’s Presence enabled me to survive the year without Gene. Since I received it, this cross has been in the forefront of my mind. I am only now able to pass it on. My hope is my friend in Austin will receive God’s grace, mercy and blessings.
