Almost a month ago Mandy lost her life a few yards from our front door. I didn’t know Mandy personally in this world but after learning so much about her beautiful spirit and angelic voice I couldn’t think of a better roadside cross to make than the Graceful Life cross. I still have lots of white to add to it still :)

It took more than once to get this cross right… but I’m pleased with the way it looks.

The day I started working on this cross I received word that an old friend of mine of almost 30 years had drowned. It was hard to stay focused. Sometimes making crosses is really heavy..

I can’t say enough.. make amends, hug more, and Love more. Our time here is short. I look forward to meeting Mandy one day and seeing my good friend Brandon again. Until that day, I’ll be making crosses no matter what’s on my mind.
