Man drives 1,200 miles to honor Orlando victims with 49 handmade crosses


An Illinois man traveled more than 1,000 miles from his home in Illinois to Orlando, Florida, in the wake of the death of innocent victims who were slain during the massacre at Pulse nightclub on June 12.

Greg Zanis, 65, drove to Orlando with 49 handmade crosses — one for each of the victims that died.

He erected the crosses outside of Orlando Health Medical Center, People reported.

Zanis also brought markers so that people could write positive messages on the crosses. Zanis wrote one victim’s name on each cross and signed his name on all 49 crosses.
