There is a three foot tall wooden cross that hangs outside on our front porch. It is hangs about 7 feet up the wall by a single nail. I special ordered it and shellacked it myself so it can be outside in the weather. The wind can really pick up here in Southern Arizona, and there was a wind storm just a couple days after I initially hung the cross outside.
Henry Rueben Caffell was seperated from his children for nine agonizing months. After serving in the British Army during World War II, he made the decision to get his wife and children a life “away from Europe’s wars” across the Atlantic in America. But how does one make such a journey with limited resources?
He made the difficult decision to separate from his family to come to America first, crossing the Atlantic on the Queen Elizabeth to get a job in a new country and then save up money to bring his family. He did all this while working through an immigration system that was new and difficult to understand.
