This crucifix has been passed down for three generations in my dads family. My great great grandmother had this crucifix in her house because she was Irish Catholic and was very religious. When she passed away she gave it to my great grandmother who gave it to my grandmother who gave my dad. We keep it in our office so that God can be with us. When my great great grandparents immigrated from Ireland, they brought the crucifix with them to keep God with them in America. Now it is a reminder of my family's belief and of my family.
