Below are two albums of pictures that I created:
1. Our grand daughter Adrianna.
2. Tears of Mary!

with aching limbs and saw that the hands of the Virgin and her face were
badly damaged. There were now dark spots on her cheeks where the paint
had peeled off, giving the impression that she was injured, and her
smile had vanished—only her eyes looked intact, conveying the same
upon seeing the statue, the dying man had such a surge of joy and love
that it was like witnessing a reunion scene between a Mother and a son
... The Madonna wanted to be all things to all. For the love of her
child she had put aside her heavenly appearance...
