My rocks started out from designs I have seen elsewhere. Then I started to paint the flowers with different colored petals which signifies, to me, the different phases of a life from happy to sad and everything in between. The rocks helped me reflect on the life of my son in law who took his life at the age of 31. He left behind my daughter and 9 month old granddaughter. The messages on those flower rocks signify everything I wish I could have said to him. He is missed terribly.
