In October of 2016 we were in Savanah, Georgia during a road trip. As we walked along the riverfront, a man making palm flowers, smiled at us as we greeted him, we kept walking. As we walked away he yelled "here lady", we turned and he tossed a rose in my direction. I returned to thank him and gave him a donation for the rose. Father Theo Okafor blessed the rose for me and it is now part of the cross made by the Garcia family. Enjoy the blessings, Happy Easter to all. Amen https://www.sacredheartcatholiccloudcroft.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=203924918 203924918
