Our Patriot’s Journey

Hello from Northeastern Pennsylvania!

  I found Robert's card at Smith-Gilbert Gardens in Kennesaw , GA. I was visiting my sister who lives in Atlanta. I was with my sister-in-law who is my late brother's wife. My sister sat down on a bench and insisted that  my sister-in-law and I follow the map to an area in the garden called the Mulberry Bowl. When we found the beautiful mulberry tree it was next a sculpture entitled  Respite. I found Robert's picture on the ground under this magnificent tree in such a beautiful, peaceful place.

  I brought the picture back home with me to PA and today, which is the Feast of St Ann (the grandmother of Jesus) I placed it at the candle lighting alter in St. Mary's Church of The Immaculate Conception in Wilkes-Barre, PA. After mass, I noticed that the picture was already gone, on its way to a new location that someone else holds special. Thank you for allowing me to participate in one leg of this amazing journey.
