Rosary beads given to me by my aunt for the passing of my father
Rosary beads given to me by my aunt for the passing of my father

My aunt Eva gave me these rosary beads when my father died of cancer in 1985. I've held them close to me ever since. I keep them in my purse and use them to pray whenever I feel it is necessary. Even when I moved to Illinois, they have helped me connect to my family back in Jalisco and most recently have helped me get past the death of my mother two years ago.

Place(s): Jalisco, Mexico and Illinois
Year: 1996
