Stella Agudelo, 76 holds the wooden cross that she found among rubble of her destroyed home in the Coffey Park neighborhood in Santa Rosa, Calif., on Tuesday, Oct. 24, 2017. Originally from Colombia, Stella lived in her house for forty years before it burned down in the Tubbs fire.
After digging for her jewelry she and a friend opened one of the last boxes among the ashes. Inside the box was a wooden cross that remained fully intact. Stella said, "The wooden cross was given to us in the church and it's just wood and it survived. It's very special. When you have faith you have to rely on any sign. When I found this Christ it's God telling me, "I am with you". I will save this forever. I came here looking for gold and I found the real gold which was this Christ.
