God bless her soul, and pardon the ironic observation, but it brings a whole new meaning to Jesus’ edict to “bear one’s cross and follow after me”.

We all have to go somehow, someway. I guess If I have to choose, getting crushed to death by the symbol of our Lord isn’t so bad. I mean, isn’t our physical death only a part of life that we we all must pass through? My hope is right now, she is thanking God that cross fell on top of her, and brought her to a much better place.

The sad thing is that yesterday I heard a talk show host make fun of this event. The person kept on saying: "Jesus killed this woman!"
How absurd! It was Sir Isaac Newton’s Law that took into effect!
*i.e. Gravity)!
