    all over the appalachians you have 3 crosses...you will see them from the roads...up on the hills....

    there is a story behind them....


    The Rev. Bernard Coffindaffer, a businessman turned evangelist who spent a fortune building trios of crosses beside roads in 29 states and two other countries, died Friday at his home here. He was 68.

    Thanks. I've always wondered about those when I've seen them.
