HENRY COUNTY, Va. (WSLS) - A southwest Virginia man wanted to do something special to remind the community about the true meaning of Easter.

David Naff, who owns Naff Welding, has been working on a massive cross for months to get it finished in time for Easter.

Two cranes lifted the giant, 110 foot high cross into the air Wednesday at Victory Baptist Church in Feidale.

WSLS-TV's Jarett Henshaw has the story behind the towering cross. Watch the above video for the complete story.
