LINDA RAINWATER (nee Gaulding) was born

MILAGRO means miracle in Spanish. However, it is also
the name of small brass, silver, gold or tin charms. These charms were introduced to the New World by the Spaniards and they
are still a part of life today in much of Central and South America. The tiny pieces are bought by those who have a special
prayer for the saints. Milagros come in all shapes, representing any ailment, any need. They are taken to the churches where
they are pinned to the walls, altar cloths, crosses or the saints themselves.
