The Gratitude Cross – Another Caring Soul

In July I showed up in Glenwood Springs to serve on jury duty.  What seemed to be a drag, turned out to be a wonderful experience for me, because of the people I met.  I never got picked to be on the jury, but all those days that I sat on the hard benches in the courthouse waiting for my turn to be questioned, I was able to meet some wonderful people.  One of those people was Susie Hoeppli.

I was having a hard time with the pain in my heart, over the loss of Morgan…it was such a deep, searing pain, and Susie picked up on it immediately.  She told me about the Gratitude Cross that her father had designed before his death – she had not launched the website yet, but was going to be shortly.  She gave me a rubber bracelet that said, ASK, BELIEVE, and RECEIVE.  I put it on and wore it the rest of the week.  Every time I started to feel low I would pull on the bracelet, and pray for help from others in our fight for justice for Morgan, and all others, then in my heart I started to believe it would happen, and sure enough it did.  Now all of you that are reading this are really going to make things happen, because of your huge hearts, minds, and caring souls.

Then on my birthday Susie gave me a silver Gratitude Cross to wear – I love it so much!  I know some of you think it may be silly that a piece of jewelry could bring you comfort, but for me it does.  Not only is it beautiful, but it lies right over your heart chakra, and during the day when I start to feel the hurt inside of me I just put my hand over it as it lies over my heart chakra, and I get such a warm feeling of love coming through.

If you know anyone that is going through a hard time, and might need something like this to get them through, please check out the Gratitude Cross website at

  1. I am praying for your family. I am glad the cross is able to bring you some measure of comfort in your devastating loss. I just can’t believe how many things went wrong in the case of Morgan’s stalking, but it could happen to anyone, any family, anywhere. None of us are safe from the horrors you have been through. Thank you for being brave and sharing your story, so others can be informed.

  2. I don’t even know you guys but as I’ve read through this your story has moved me to tears many times. I am so sorry for your loss and will be praying for you. I’ll also be sure to share this blog so my friends can see it too and spread it around more.

I welcome your feelings and ideas on Morgan's Stalking
