  3. As a wonderfully nice surprise some single friends (either widowed, divorced or single)–gave me a nice hand made wall hanging–oval shaped with flowers pressed on bottom and that scripture 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 hand scrolled inside the oval and our names Beth and Doug at the bottom all inside oval. This was all encased in a ncie gold frame.
