Just returned from the Mississippi River shoreline with a large piece of driftwood. We will be creating a driftwood memorial at a local hospital for employees and family members who have died during the year. A group memorial created by individuals using pebbles, seashells, ivy, hydrangea blossoms, ceramic pearls. As with all this cross making business, we will see.
