BACA -- MATTHEW D. Matt............. Birds in flight symbolize the end of a Christian life. One bird is shown leaving the flock and "going home" to his final reward. Three remaining birds continue their journey through life with peace of mind, knowing their lost loved one is now in God's hands. You are forever in our thoughts!
