Jenny Hall - Blessed Are They
The Maltese Cross, the words that appear to relate to the death of a child and the colours pink and blue were my starting point. The Maltese Cross is connected to the Beatitudes “Blessed are they that ..”. I printed these onto the Maltese cross. I researched my family tree for the infants who did not survive their first year, They are represented in the small Maltese Cross by name and age when they died.
Recently my sister and I laid flowers on the marked grave of our Great Uncle Alan McCall in Tasmania who died when one day old. We mourned the loss of his descendants in our family.
